Tuesday evening 16 of us (from the pickle ball players here at Wilderness) went to Marietta,CA to the Asian Seafood Buffet for dinner. It is half price on Tuesday nights for seniors, so for $15 for two we had our fill of crab legs, shrimp, salmon, mussells, clams and sushi.
On Wednesday there was no line dancing because they had a funeral at the family lodge. There are two couples here at Wilderness that use to hike with me at Palm Springs. So we decided to go for a hike around here. We went to Diamond Valley Lake (see my January blog, WATER, WATER, WATER). Larry and I had taken the North Hill trail when we were here before, so this time we wanted to hike the Lakeview Trail. It is 21.8 miles long. We didn't go all around the lake!

We hiked the East Dam it was 2.5 miles long. Then we turned around and walked 2.5 miles back. A nice hike for today. We would like to bike around the whole lake before we leave the area.

The view of the visitor center and Western Center for Archaeology and Paleontology. I would have like for everyone to have gone to the visitor center before our hike to understand more about the lake and dam but it is only open Thursday to Sunday.
As you can see from these pictures it was quite an overcast day. It was cool (almost cold) but not windy. It is suppose to rain (and snow at lower elevations then usual) the next several days, so it was good to go hiking today.
