Road Trips Sneakin’ Terah Through the Sierras: Jul 31 – Aug 3, 2014 March 2, 2015 calamarichris Leave a comment I wanted to show Terah some of the great swimming holes I’d found earlier this month, so we took a trip up the 395, stopping at Gus’ Really Good Beef Jerky. (Can you spot the Barrel Harbor octopus?) Swimming hole #1: Diaz Lake wasn’t the best spot. It was full of water skiers and powerboats, and the water was milky & murky. Also too many normals running around to leave our swimsuits packed. Swimming hole #2: Keohe’s mineral hotsprings is always a great stop, especially after crossing the hot desert on a motorcycle. But the water is slightly chlorinated, and it’s always got people. But sometimes the people are interesting. Terah had a nice conversation in the hotpool with a lady from the LA area. But the cool pool always beckons. Swimming hole #3: We were pleased to see that Lake Sabrina’s water level had come up so much, but the water was pretty chilly. When I visited here last year, I was able to ride my mountainbike out to this rocky island in the lake.
