We were luckily given the best campsite in the park, towards the back so it's shady, yet allows the satellite dish to hit the satellites. There are trees for shade, but not so many and so close together that one can't see through them. Actually, from our campsite we can even see the watery part of the lake, the rest of the campground and the abundant wildlife of this area.
Funny story... Our first night we are tucked in for the night watching TV at about 11:30pm when we feel the motor home rocking a bit as if something was pushing on it. Immediately we figured on a bear who may have smelled food in the coach, but Bill went outside to check and no wildlife around (beside himself). Then, when going to bed it hit us... Could it have been an earthquake? Checked it on www.earthquaketrack.com and sure enough by the time felt... a 4.5 and a 4.0 a few hours later, about 5-6kms depth in Janesville, which is about 13 miles south of Susanville. Researching it here are the statistics:
- 13 earthquakes today
- 114 earthquakes in the past 7 days
- 339 earthquakes in the past month
- 3511 earthquakes in the past year
- With the strongest being a 4.7 magnitude, in Bayside California.
- The largest earthquake in Northern California this week was 4.5 Magnitude, in Janesville, California.
We plan to stay here until Wednesday August 10th and are currently planning our next place to visit and stay at. IF we have Wi-Fi availability there as well, we shall update our blog with a new post. Otherwise we shall do so the next time we get Wi-Fi to get another post into the blog. Here are some photos (and a video of the Chipmunk) of our stay at Eagle Lake RV Park and the Susanville area.
