Folsom Lake, 4/9/16 - 4/10/16

3.5 miles.
4/9/16.  We had an event to go to earlier that day in Sacramento, so we decided to check out Folsom Lake to see if the lupines were in bloom.  Spent the night at Beals Campground.  When we got there, there was a car parked in our clearly marked RESERVED campsite.  So we told the ranger and he found the owner and have him move it.  There were a lot of Boy Scouts there, multiple troops.  Owner of the vehicle was part of one of the troops.  We set up the car and went to bed, skipping dinner because we were still full from lunch earlier that day. 

4/10/16.  Ugh...the rain.  Pitter-patter all night long.  We drove to Beeks Bight hoping to see the endless fields of lupine like the last time were there.
And it had been raining, so I was hoping for some great water droplet pics.  Unfortunately, it was a little drizzly, so I didn't want to take my camera out.  Plus, there were hardly any flowers.  Lots and lots of wet grass though.  The trail we took ended up under the lake, so after half a mile we turned around back to the car.  We hiked around the boating area for another 2.5 miles, then headed home.
