    We stayed at Kern River Inn Bed and Breakfast on a strong recommendation from friends who had stayed here last year, and we were not disappointed. Kernville is a quiet little town in the Southern Sierra Nevada, with the Kern River running through its centre. There's a green circled with quaint local stores, an Italian restaurant and a great saloon. It's a town that is perfect for outdoor pursuits like river rafting, hiking and mountaineering, not that we took part in any of these! There are also various stores that cater for these pursuits.
    Kern River Inn Bed and Breakfast is on a quiet street that runs adjacent to the river. The property is straight off a chocolate box lid, it's setting is quite idyllic, set amongst trees, river to the front and mountains behind. The bedrooms all follow a different theme, we stayed in the Greenhorn Room which was sumptuously furnished with flat screen television, the bed being one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. The en-suite was of the same quality, and the shower had endless hot water with good water pressure. Everything about the room and the whole house is top quality, I believe you would be hard pushed to find anywhere better than this, it's simply perfect.
    We were greeted by Virginia on arrival, given the low down on the house and shown to our room. There was a fridge/freezer on the landing for guest use and a small bookshelf to peruse. We were given keys and able to come and go as we pleased.
    So, that's the bed part covered, now the breakfast; oh the breakfast! We were offered what we'd think of as a typical American start to the day. Home made waffles and maple syrup, eggs and tomatoes, mixed fresh fruit and yoghurt, home made granola and home made lemon cake to finish it all off, a perfect way to start anyone's day. Oh yes, I nearly forgot to mention the most important thing of this day and age... Yes, there is free wi-fi...!!!
    With the level of accommodation that Virginia offers it is not the cheapest out there, but it's great value for what you get and is worth every single cent. We could not have been happier and therefore give the Kern River Inn Bed and Breakfast the highest possible recommendation.

    We're excited to be starting the actual road trip part of our road trip today, and are awake very early, so decide to get up and hit the road sooner than planned... that is if we can pick up our car earlier than we booked it for. A quick phone call to Alamo Rentals confirms we can collect our car as soon as we like! Elaine had been packing her …

    The road (178) up to Lake Isabella from Bakersfield was a nice change from the long, bouncy straits on Highway 99. The ravine we drove through was fantastic. It was a steap climb up before the valley opened up. The lake itself was a little short of water but still a very beautiful ...

    So the night hike went off reasonably well. It got a little dicey at the end if things though as we tried to wrap our hike up around 2:30 am but no! The anticipated campsite was already full. So we continue to option B, arriving at 3:30...and it was full. So by 4:45 we were pretty much beyond caring, so the next relatively flat spot we saw, we took, sleeping practically 3 feet from trail. Something about the plans of mice and men, ...

    Now for the days challenges. Although we made it to the trailhead before
    dark (barely), we might have to backtrack to the general store
    tomorrow, which would only be a few miles roundtrip. In our impatience
    to start hiking, Andrew accidentally grabbed a mismatch stove fuel
    canister at the outfitting store...a bummer for someone who likes a hot
    meal every night. If ...
