After spending several days in Las Vegas, it was time to hit the road again. We were looking forward to, after passing through Death Valley, leaving behind the extreme heat and enjoying the relative coolness of Yosemite and the California coast. It’s a long ride to San Francisco with a lot to see along the way, but we planned for several overnight stays, as well as spending a couple of days with family.
With the rental car troubles and probably least interesting part of the route behind us, we were fully ready to enjoy the over the top and extravagant city in the middle of the desert that is Las Vegas. Our stay here was a bit longer than at some of the other big cities, because we had a little side trip planned on the second day.
Last year’s summer vacation was a big trip. Three weeks on the west coast of the United States, road tripping between major cities in a convertible. Even though we usually don’t want to plan everything we are going to do each day (and leave it up to what we feel like doing at the time), we did do quite a lot of preparation before going on this trip.
