British visitor chats about RV camping the ‘spine’ of the Sierra Navada mountains


The (United Kingdom) Telegraph recently ran an article about a family’s RV camping along “the spine of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains” by expat Kate McCann.

In it, McCann writes: “Before our holiday, we’d mapped out our route and pre-booked campsites in places we suspected would be most crowded, such as Yosemite. The US has an excellent system of national and state park campsites – these are cheap, basic and, often, in the most beautiful and secluded spots. The privately run RV parks tend to offer better facilities-great if you don’t mind overnighting in something resembling a car park.”

“In one such park, just north of a stifling hot Fresno, the woman from the RV next door came bearing gifts for our children. She had long, California-blonde hair and an enormous chest upon which a tiny bikini was fighting for its life. She’d rooted around in her storage cupboards and found handfuls of toys which her son, now 20, had clearly outgrown some time ago. She was just one of many temporary friends we made on our journey.”
