Glad to be going home, loved the vacation but it is always good to go home. Long driver today so I will not get many steps.
I moved to California in 1980 and I was poor, and busy with my education and career and I had two kids so I didnt travel much in those days. Over the years I have seen some parts of the state and enjoyed it. Over the past month, I went up the coast to Oregon to see my granddaughters college and pick up our dog and now traveled from Sacramento to Truckee and down 395 to Palm Springs and today we are traveling up Route 5 to Sacramento. This state is big and it is beautiful and it has so many different types of beauty.
I feel for all of you that live in LA. We were up early and drove on the outskirts and the traffic was intense. We have mountains and dessert and so much agriculture. It really is amazing. Looks like most of the lakes and reservoirs are low and I fear that we will have another bad fire year. Saw a lot of evidence of last years forest fires. Overall, it is a beautiful place when you are outside of the larger cities.
Happy April 15 which used to be a day of stress but taxes have been extended so its a good day.
