Sanborn County Park in Saratoga has been our home for the past four days while my husband has been visiting with his son. It’s a lovely park but the drive up the mountain is challenging with a very narrow winding road. Also the internet connection has been driving me crazy…very off and on….even using the Wilson Sleek cell booster. Strange…..we are in the heart of Silicon Valley but the mountain range that holds the San Andreas fault is blocking reception.
We were sitting inside as the car went straight up and down…only got pictures through the window.
The wharf is a zoo…..a mass of humanity looking for food and entertainment. It is difficult to be around so many people after being in the spaciousness of Alaska. On the sidewalk street performers, mimes, bands and portrait artists divert our attention.
Our time is spent visiting and eating! Lots of great food!
We were introduced to Peets Coffee, Cookie Butter and Trader Joe’s.
Before it’s too late, here are a few pictures from our drive south toward the bay area.
These elk were grazing next to the beach….a very strange sight for us!
Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt Redwoods State park is a 31 mile section of the old 101 highway. We stopped to get an up close view of the big trees.
We started east yesterday.…..planning to to take I-80 all the way to Colorado.
It’s a relief to be heading back east, or at least be heading away from the west coast! There are too many people crammed into one continuous town!
We made it to Rollins Lake in Colfax, CA yesterday and opted for an electric hook-up to run the AC. First time the air conditioner has been on since last September in Kansas!
Looking forward to another great visit with friends in CO after getting through Nevada, Utah and Wyoming!
