California 2012 – Yosemite part 1

Navigating across northern California would have been easier if we’d remembered the gazetteer, but we were trusting google…and then we found there was a whole lot less Internet out here. We stopped in the town of Ukiah for dinner at their brewpub – their pilsner was a bit light- then continued across the central valley, finding a BLM land pull off that didn’t actually have no camping signs, and settled in.

California 2012: Redwoods

You know there's been some stress around when I'm the one requesting a lazy morning in camp on the first day of vacation. Sunday we had packed up and drove out of Portland, saturday we had been completely booked with Tacit & Zaiah's commitment ceremony and visiting Floridian horde, and the entire week previous I was covering at work for various people. No wonder I slept in until Scott had finished creating coffee, then I made a leisurely omelet breakfast and eventually Scott pushed us to get going.
