Saying Good-bye to California~

Before we get too far down the road (heading to Pennsylvania), I wanted to take a moment to say good-bye to California. We’ve spent 8 of the last 9 months in this beautiful state, and regardless of how you might feel about the politics of the state, there is something for everyone in California!
There are quaint little towns –
Nevada City Streets
and big cities –
San Diego Scenic Drive-5
There are miles of ocean shoreline,
San Diego Scenic Drive-19
not to mention the second largest lake in the country –
Lake Tahoe Day-11
There are big roads through the mountains
Coachella to San Diego-13
and there are dirt roads through the mountains.
Titus Canyon Drive-2
There’s Death Valley
DV Road
and Joshua Tree National Parks.

There are the animals in the zoo,
San Diego Zoo-6
the birds in the backyard-
Gambel's Quail
and the birds at the Date Festival!
Date Festival-14
There are deserts that dissolve into mountains
nuts and bolts-2
and beautiful lakes that magically appear on mountain drives.
Christmas Drive-7
We enjoyed (ahem) some snow –
January 30 drive-7
and and learned about palm trees!
Date Day-15
We made new friends, reconnected with old ones, and just barely scratched the surface of some of the beauty that is California.
But perhaps the California “thing” that we are most sorry to leave behind is this –
JoshuaTreeNP-62
Ah, farewell, dear In-N-Out. We hold your memory dear!
