Temporary ‘home’ at SKP Park of the Sierras
We’ve spent most of November at a cozy site in the Escapees’ (SKP) Park of the Sierras just outside Coarsegold in the Sierra Mountain foothills near Yosemite National Park.
By the end of December, reluctantly we will be packing everything away, emptying our holding tanks, and pulling up our landing gear.
The park’s Website asserts that the best feature about Park of the Sierras is “the people.” Both Jimmy and I can testify to that. We have been made to feel extremely welcome. In addition to having a very active volunteer ethic, this park has a jammed packed activities calendar. Among other activities, Jimmy continues to volunteer each weekday morning on the maintenance crew, and I’ve joined in with the Writers’ Group every Monday.
The second best feature is the “extra large, beautiful RV sites in the old growth oak forest.” No two sites are the same. Our fantastic site is an example of the shady and roomy sites where no one RV is placed on top of their neighbor. Brilliant planning on the part of the pioneer Escapees 20 years ago.
