A year and a half ago one of my best friends flew from Colorado to California to hang out with me for nine whole days. It was her first visit to California, and we had THE BEST TIME. I will always smile when I think about that extended week that we spent gallivanting all over the northern part of my state (and putting over 700 miles on my car in the process ✌️).
Photos from that trip never made it here to the blog. I think I took so many that I paralyzed myself and rather than post just a few, I didn't share any. 🙃
In preparation for my upcoming trip to visit Meegan in Colorado, I revisited some of those old shots and thought I'd compile some highlights.
If you're wondering if you can visit San Francisco, Berkeley, Carmel, Santa Cruz, Big Sur, Muir Woods, and Yosemite in 9 days, the answer is yes. We spent a lot of time driving, of course, but even that was fun because we could talk talk talk, listen to music, etc. And it also helps to be driving some of the most beautiful roads in the USA*.
