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.
