Ok, so it has been a while since I last posted anything on this blog, lots of catching up to do. Right now I'm in Soquel, CA (right next to Santa Cruz) with Sherrie. We're house-sitting for some friends for a few weeks. This is the view of some redwoods from the back patio...

We drove here from our home in Salida, CO taking our time and making some stops along the way. The first day we drove to Zion National Park and spent a couple of days staying with friends. Had a great day of hiking in the park and picnicking amongst the hoodoos.

After a wonderful day in Zion we drove to Vegas. Yup, I've had never been there and wanted to experience it for myself. We spent the day walking up and down the strip soaking it all in. I probably don't need to mention that going from the tranquil natural surroundings of Zion National Park to the hustle of Vegas was pretty jarring. We spent the night at the Luxor. I spent an entire two dollars on gambling machines, just for the fun of it. I think 24 hrs was just the right amount of time, very interesting place.

From Vegas we drove to Fresno, CA and then to Santa Cruz the next morning. So now we're starting to explore the area. Sunday morning we walked along the coast at Pleasure Point and watched the sufers.

Sherrie has more pics and stories about our adventure at her blog, check it out here!
