Delta Camping Life

leave a comment »

A few weeks ago a camping trip was created by my friends. We never thought to go camping just north of Antioch, just up Hwy160, right before Rio Vista. The site is called Brannon Island (not an actual island). The temperature was scorching hot. A friend almost melted away. The river delta saved our lives. Camping food was pretty filling. Waking up very early was awesome. Spending a weekend rabble-rousing with friends and learning the game of Cornhole was epic.

If you plan to go up there soon, make sure to grab a spot with a bunch of trees on the campground or right by the river. I suggest meeting somewhere in the middle with this, ’cause the morning sunrise is breath taking and the afternoon sun is killer. Best alternative fun…jump into the river delta (bring floatation device with a beer holder).

The image below was taken around 530am. Why that early? Because it’s a peaceful ritual when all you have is your morning coffee, fresh air, and a sunrise to watch.

Happy Camping!
