Notes From the Road - Day Ten

The day of 87 naps.... and the end of our trail for now... headed home.

Notes From the Road - Day Nine

Our second night in San Francisco was a bit of a splurge, but worth it, I think, for the quiet...

It was, however, within walking distance of some very tourist-oriented shops - never afraid to be ostentatious...

Notes From the Road - Day Eight

If I learned anything from this trip, it is that I try to pack too much into too little time (I really need to learn to get my relax on) AND I reaffirmed, once again, that I will always always always prefer the country over the city. We headed north from the ever-bustling San Francisco to the beautiful coast of Point Reyes and Inverness... and drank up the simple life... just what I needed.

Notes From the Road - Day Seven

This was the day of the accident. No pictures taken of that...I think that would have angered the woman I rear ended a bit..."hang on, gotta get this for my blog"... (:

Prior to said fun time, we did go to an excellent aquarium in Monterey where I got to meet these little guys - odd fishes with an equally odd name - the spiny lumpsucker.

Notes From the Road - Day Six

Some days are just about hiking and the trees you meet along the way...

Notes from the Road - Day Five

Better late than not at all... I'm on Day Ten, but if you'll forgive me, I'll go ahead and send out a flurry of posts anyways... things such as in-grown toenail removal and a minor fender bender with the rental car have delayed me... that, and my trying to see it "all", which I am working hard on today by taking 87 naps and seeing not much of anything except the inside of my eyelids.

Day Five found us in Yosemite, quite possibly one of my favorite national parks... and I've seen a few in my day...

The signs marking trail distances often bely the trail's near vertical ascension, but the bang for your (700-stair) buck is a priceless view...
