After some investigations and research, we know which campground to head to in Lake Tahoe. However, we quickly figure out that we are getting into peak season and campgrounds fill up quickly especially on weekends. It is getting harder if not impossible to get a site – all nice campgrounds are full weeks ahead. We end up at the Encore resort campground. The kids enjoy the entertainment program here with Art, Bingo and Movie night. The hike to the cascades starts wonderful – but unfortunate it turn out to mission incomplete – we are not equipped appropriate (flip flops only) and already headed down too far to get the hiking gear from the car. On our way out towards Mono lake, we get to stop at the agricultural inspection station (I bet they get us for our WA license plates). The lady inspects our fruits, woods and the button of our RV. It results into a few questions as well as a loss of an Apple that we just purchased at Lake Tahoe. Thankful to this great experience of a true agricultural inspection we are able to share some learnings:
- You must not transport firewood for more than 60 miles
- Keep your slip, you may need to show it later
- Inspect every fruit you purchase to avoid further losses at future inspection points
We continue our route to Mono Lake.
