Day hike, Eastman lake, BBQ after

Hi, if u have never been to Eastman lake u will love it. Would not take up all your day if u have plans that evening. Was thinking of hiking around the day use area. It is about 25 minutes almost directly east of Chowchilla. Parking cost 4 dollars per car but well worth it! This is a nice reservoir, set in the rolling foothills studded with nice oak trees. We might see some bald eagles, coyotes, bobcats. There is a trail but was thinking of doing some cross country hiking up the hills. But we can decide as a group. Full hike might be 3-4 miles max i would guess. Have hiked this area before and never get tired of it.Was thinking of meeting in Merced again for those of u north of me and of course u guys can carpool here, or meet us in Chowchilla if u are further south. Elevation gain depends on route we take. Taking some carne asada , hot dogs, sodas and of coarse water. So we can have a great BBQ after and that is free of course. Do not forget to give the person u are carpooling some gas money or at least offer, Thanks!

    Great trip! Good to see everyone again and meet Erene! Salvador was a wizard on the grill, Aaron found some fun and challenging trails, and I had no responsibilities whatsoever. hahaha!
