We had an awful campsite in Upper Pines Wednesday night with lousy
neighbors. To make up for it, Thursday morning we got to move to
a fantastic site in North Pines along the Merced. After we moved
camp we hung out at the beach along the Merced all day relaxing.
I swam across the Merced to make sure it was as cold as it looked - it
was. I actually swam it cause it was my birthday. The kids
followed me across, then swam back and forth a few times. I
walked back - once was enough.
