The last time I had blogged about where we were going to get out of the heatwave we have been having for several weeks in a row. We decided to go to a new place that the kids had never been to! Lake Gregory near Crestline is a wonderful little community that is between Lake Silverwood and Crestline in California. It is only about 4,500 ft. above sea level and was closer to home than we thought! This little lakeside town must be a well kept secret as we went on a Friday afternoon and there couldn't have been more than a hundred people in the water park area.
Here are a few pictures of our kids having a blast on the water slides. Our oldest, brought a friend to come hang out with her. The first picture below is our youngest who loves being in water of any kind!
I definitely think that we will be back in the near future. This was a nice place to relax and get out of the high heat in our hometown. The temperature was only about 85 degrees and was quite comfortable in the shade of the tall whispering Pine Trees. My wife and I just sat and watched the scenery change as the clouds built into a pillow like white cotton ball just north of the lake. It was a very peaceful place to be, as if all of your troubles just seemed to drift away with the clouds leaving tranquil thoughts of not having a care in the world.
We saw a beautiful Log Cabin up in the hills across from where we were sitting and just wondered how nice it would be to live in a home like that. I sat there and pondered how much it would be to buy a home up here and just move away from it all! It would be a blast to even rent a cabin up here in the late Summer/Early Fall to see the changing colors of the trees. I am definitely finding myself moving to a mountain community when I can retire with my beautiful Wife Kat.
The drive time to get here took much less than we thought as well. My GPS which gave me a new way to drive by Lake Silverwood through some windy turns (not bad though if you drove slow.) into the back way to Lake Gregory. I spoke to my Mom and Dad yesterday and had told them where we went, they said that they had taken the whole family up there several times when I was very young.
We had a great time and have put this place on our map to come back, enjoy the lake and all of it's surroundings.
Thank you Lake Gregory for sharing your scenery!
See you soon!
