Alta Lake Camping 2011

Finally our camping weekend of 2011 arrived. The weather was much nicer than last year when we waited until September. That was collld. This year we went to Alta Lake in Eastern Washington and my mom came along. I had been there when I was about 14 or 15 years old and I met some friends there which made it fun. Some of them ran off with my entire CD collection though so that was very disappointing. Anyhow the disappointing thing this year is that their online reservation and map system was very misleading. There were about 5 sites right on the lake that I had to choose from when I made the reservation about 4 months prior. I chose the one that had the most space between either other site to the right and left of it (when looking at the lake). On arrival we found that all the other sites to the right and left had direct access to the lake but the one we had was back up the hill from them so they were between us and the lake. We were not on the lake as the map had shown. Of course they were already taken so we had no choice after the 5 hour drive but to just set up camp.

We did end up having a good time. Even went down to Lake Chelan on one day and Juliah and I took out a jet ski for a couple hours. It was both our first time on a jet ski and we loved it! Didn’t get any photos unfortunately but we will remember it. These photos are just of us around the campsite and a few of Diablo Lake on our way back across the pass.
