Photos from Pyramid Lake, Government shutdown but one should
« on: January 10, 2019, 03:27:15 AM »
...still do the right thing by following the honor system and pay the fees if one chooses to use the services of campground...S o no campground attendant/staff available but we paid anyways like we always do when a payment is required at a park, beach, etc., by filling out the necessary paperwork, putting the money in the envelope and dropping it into the payment box...regardle ss of the many spots available in the middle of Winter ...

Arrival and payment:








The campground and lake are located next to the Grape Vine so easy access off I-5  O0:






My little girl's favorite activity at night when we go camping, must be the fire.. ;D:




Little condensation moisture in the morning but it is the middle of Winter:




The morning air feels fresh and crisp:






The lake:














Saw quiet a few fishermen and bass is common in this lake they say:

Those stripper looks good. 

Anyways we don't even bother going to any national/state park especially when there isn't any body working or enforcing.  Can't afford to get rob or caught up in a ugly situation with families.

I grew up in SoCal and been to Pyramid Lake plenty of time but never camp out there. Camping sound scary sometimes.  I need a cabin or hotel nearby.

i havent heard anything from there for awhile now but hmong folks likes to tell there stories about dragons that live there and how they also see ghost. I didnt believe the ghost stories at first and defiantly not the dragon stories but a couple of years ago a mutual American friend of mine went fishing there with his boat, he was fishing near the island, he heard screams coming from the island he went to go inspect with his boat and saw a hispanic dude on the island by himself with no boat screaming at em. Something didnt look right so he called the sheriff and by the time they got there the hispanic dude just vanish. They circle the island for 2 hours and didnt see a person or boat in site, I only believe this story because that mutual american friend doesnt ever lie to people, so maybe some of those hmong ghost story they were saying was somewhat true

There's nothing to be afraid of. Do this next time. When you see people walking towards you, just act like you're a ghost. Do this and people won't bother you,  especially hmong people.
