2008 Lake Almanor Day 2

Up fairly early, I had a nice run north from the Dorado Inn along the lake. Sharon and Janie's plan for the day was to hike in Lassen Park north of Chester. After they left for the day, Jack and I went down to the dock to try and catch the Tomasin or the Snipes boat heading out. We missed both of them by minutes.

I wandered back up and harrangued Hunter into taking Jack and I out to Tomasin. Catching up to Tomasin near the dam, his boat was dead in the water. The main engine belt had shredded. We spent some time with the Snipes, Hunters and Tomasins floating and swimming in the lake until we started towing the boat back to the dock.

As we were towing the boat back, Chabrier showed up. He took Jack and Mike on board and they ended up tubing with him while we dragged Tomasin's boat back to the dock.

After getting Tomasin's boat out of the water and back on the trailor, we loaded up everyone in the remaining boats and headed to Carol's for lunch. With the closing of the hamburger hut, this is one of the few places on the lake for lunch. With a group of more than 20 people, we had a long leisurely lunch.

On the way back from lunch, we stopped in the middle of the lake, floated and swam some more.

Back at the Dorado Inn, Jack and I took one of the waverunners out for a long run. It was one of those afternoon when the wind is picking up and Jack got a rough ride.

Sharon and Janie got back from their hike. They hiked 6 miles to the top of Mount Harkness and visited the ranger and the outlook station at the top. This is the same hike that they did last year.

We finished the evening with the Wallen making a late dinner of tri-tip, salad and pasta.
