Redwoods Part 2

Saturday we woke up ready for our big hike across the width of the park. ¬†With lunch packed and extra water, we drove to the welcome center to begin our 6 hour hike. In the beginning, our energy was high. We chatted and came up with new hypothetical questions for each other, like what creatures we’d put in a saltwater … Read More

Stinsen Beach and a new sweater

I finally went across the Golden Gate Bridge! This Saturday Ashwin, the doggies, and I headed to Stinsen Beach: population approximately 500. After a long and extremely winding drive, we drove into the beachtown’s main area.¬† It’s crazy how many micro climates there are in Northern California. This beach town was at least ten degrees warmer, and even though the … Read More

By some miracle Ashwin found us a very nice place in the neighborhood of Nob Hill. There are six apartments in our building, and we are on the top floor. The ground floor has a small market, which … Read More

Unfortunately we are back to only having one dog crate set up in the car, while one dog sits on my lap. The hotel room felt like … Read More

Go West!

On Wednesday, June 27th 2012, Snickers, Meeko, and I officially made it to the state of California! I spent the morning packing up the car and trying to figure out what I should do with myself for the next few days. Ashwin booked a hotel for us in San Diego on Friday night, where we would start our journey driving … Read More

Cross country road trip: The Plan

I’ve given a lot of thought into how to approach this road trip. My conclusion is that this is a perfect opportunity for me to explore the Southern states that I have never been to before, and to really take my time. I realize that cross country road trips are usually “once in a lifetime” ordeals, but this is actually … Read More
