If you go to California, you must see the Giant Red Woods, of course.
Sonny and I are both lovers of wood, and seeing these magnificent trees was a treat.
Of course a trip to Yosemite, Just natural beauty, rugged and wild. The day after we were there and spent the night a bear attack was reported on a ‘soft sided camping unit’, that is how the tent and pop up is described.
Crossing the Rockies was a treat to us southerners, snow is not a thing we see all the time. Maybe, just maybe once a year. And besides, it is cccold in NC when there is snow, we were comfortable in short sleeves. It was summer and still snow.
The famous Air Force Academy Chapel and its Striking construction. So modern when it was built.
Sonny and I took the cog train to Pike’s Peak. The girls wer snug in a motel. Now this elevation was cccold.
WE took a tour on the paddleboat Tom Sawyer.
This is the St. Louis Arch. we went up in it, the whole crew, even Colette who was never too adventurous. There is a great view from the top.
Thanks for allowing me to show you our trip from over 30 years ago.
We have circled the USA several times since then but the first time was the most exciting. Of course every trip is not the same because we tried to take different routes.
WE have found some of the nicest people as we have traveled.
An early Mobile Restaurant. The forerunner of the Roach Coach another of my businesses, in another life it seems.
