Yosemite, From the Land
We spent the first night of our California visit in a rather shabby La Quinta in the East Bay town of Dublin. After a night squandered tossing and turning on an uncomfortable mattress, we were anxious to be on our way. We quickly packed, checked out, and did a fly-by of the breakfast buffet to grab a few stale pastries and a lukewarm cup of coffee. Then we set off down the highway in our little white Chevy Cruze.
- South Saint Vrain Canyon
- On my recent trips up to Rocky Mountain National Park, I’ve opted to take a route that follows Colorado Highway 7, also known as the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway.
- Warwick Castle
- After weeks of working long hours and weekends, we decided to try and take a short break. I took the day off and we hopped in the car and drove to Warwick Castle.
- Tax Time
- It’s that time of year again when, for several days straight, I rumage through checking account statements, reorganize files, and rack my brain trying to recall where I last saw that receipt for donations made last February.
