    We like to meet 'off forum' in real life.

    A few of us did a quick reconnaissance trip this weekend for an upcoming meeting and I thought I would share if anyone is interested. This is a few hours north of Silicon Valley (San Jose, CA).

    Approaching the meeting area

    Looking up from camp, the tiny green specks above the snow are 10-15 meter pine trees.

    On top of one of the many mountains is a lake

    Lots of snow higher up.. and it was snowing quite hard.

    Well, how do you know I was the one to even take the picture? :p

    My #2 person on our forum was there, and one other person. Although there were others not connected with our group there. I did say it was a recon trip for something 2 weeks later.

    Here is the place in the Mojave desert several of us met at in January, just north of Boron, though I was the only one from our forum on that trip

    I know I was just having fun with words :) I do really have to ask though how you get to the lake on top of a mountain?...I think I see one road/path in the pictures.

    I took the road :) There are roads everywhere

    Even campgrounds higher up as well, although about 15C cooler than in the valley at the moment
