I camped at Silver Lake in August. Much better than staying in the Valley. The drive up to Tioga Pass is breathtaking, one of my all-time favorites. Went back in October and it was beautiful, all golden aspen trees and a bit of snow on the mountains. I hope you were able to visit the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest - take the drive all the way up to Barcroft gate and stop by the Patriarch Grove. Also, Bodie State Park, a cool ghost mining town.
Aspens... you had me at that!

I actually went artifact hunting all around there and drove up to the campgrounds and the two lakes, it was just an overnight trip.
There was one bit of road I bailed on ( pre-lift) that next time I would like to trundle down and see where it goes. Bristlecone is across the valley a bit so I did not make it out there. Thinking about what to do for MLK weekend so maybe that is an option.

It was as you said, very stunning. I have been out to Bodie and sometime this spring plan to head down to Aurora made it that far a few years ago but never ventured beyond it...

We prefer a very simple camping kitchen. Either a single burner gas stove with frying pan, pot or kettle or directly cooking and grilling on the campfire. So we have no long assembly and disassembly times and can use the time saved to do something cool, to go out into nature, to look at something. Also, I don't like lugging around half a household or more, because that's why I go out into nature and travel: the simple life without a lot of stuff I have to care about. Here are a some photos:

You know there is something to be said for being able to cook from your fender!

I am learning a lot reading through all of this. Here is my most recently solo setup.

Everything, except the stove, fits in the insulated bag. I used to work about 2 hours from home and pulled 10 - 12 hour shifts. This was an easy way to get out and enjoy the outdoors for short stints.

What you can not see in this photo is that I accidentally melted the tips of the tines on that lexan fork. It still works well for things like eggs and hashbrowns.

The great was pulling duty as a breakfast table.

I built this kitchen in 2019 from plans posted here on overland bound (thanks to Dave, his design, and willingness to share with this community). Made a few custom changes but the idea was about the same. it's built form 5/8" Baltic Birch with box corners and sealed with Minwax Helmsmen urethane coating. I added lights under the tops, under the stove, and on the bottom to light everything up at night. Didn't do a sink but the stove has ceramic heads to help in the wind. My favorite part is the center cover over the stove. Our little town library was fortunate enough to install a "maker space" that had a laser cutter / engraver. turned out better than I could have imagined. The kids and I have put a lot of love into this project and it makes base camp special. It's for sale by the way.....time for another fun project!!!
