Creatures roam in Sierra foothills RV park


POS_Segway_Chewie_LoriSanders_JulianneGCraneIn addition to numerous domestic pet companions, including ‘Chewie,’ the seven-month-old labradoodle owned by Lori Sanders, untold wild creatures make their home at SKP Park of the Sierras in central California south of Yosemite National Park.

Coarsegold Creek runs through the 161-acre Escapees RV Park, and the ‘Back Forty’ offers plenty of open space for walking, hiking and viewing of local wildlife including mule deer, California ground and western grey squirrel, and possibly the elusive coyote.

Closer to the ground, rattlesnakes, scorpions, black widow spiders and tarantulas make for a fascinating neighborhood.
