Jump up and get breakfast cooking. It's time for a picnic getaway for the day. While the kids are eating breakfast, pack a delicious picnic. Grab some sweatshirts as dressing in layers is always a great idea in the Sierras. Bring plenty of water for everyone in the group. Higher elevations require more water, you know. Head to this state park. Enjoy the museum and gift shop for 30-90 minutes. Then jump on the pine needle covered trails and enjoy some mountain air. Find a perfect spot for a picnic lunch along the waters' edge. Enjoy making some great memories. My next trip up the hill to this park, I will be bringing everyone's hammocks, too.
