Travel Date: January 2016
Over the long weekend in January (MLK), a few of us visited Yosemite Nat’l Park. I’ve always wanted to go there but it was always so far when I lived elsewhere, but now that I’m in the Bay Area it’s SO much closer. In fact, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to even think about going. What was I thinking? Photography may have motivated me just a tad. You can’t deny you can get effortlessly gorgeous shots in one go.
SF –> Los Angeles –> Vegas –> Death Valley –> Back to SF
Road tripping down the California coast to the valleys and back is not a trip for the faint of heart. It requires lots (i mean LOTS) of driving, good company and ambition. Also, hydration, snacks and an ample music collection is essential.
To give you some context:
SF –> LA = 6 hrs
LA –> Vegas = 4 hours
Vegas –> Death Valley = 2.3 hours
Death Valley –> back to Vegas = 2.3 hrs
Vegas –> SF = 8 hours
