Guys! I owe you a huge thank you for all the great recommendations. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time and energy to go to every place, but we made it to quite a few!
I have about 1.5 billion photos to share with you ranging from the wine-like county of Walnut Grove (a gorgeous island that's reached by crossing draw bridges...I feel like a Medieval person saying that...is that what they're called?), the gorgeous bridges entering San Francisco, foggy days at the beginning, sunny days at the end, and everything in between.
We got scared in Sacramento, so no pictures there. :( Note to self: no more "great deals" of $50 hotels in the big cities. It doesn't work the same way Texas does. We learned THAT the hard way. Safety Sally all the way.
I think I'll just start showing you a few photos of my favorite areas in parts until we get through the trip, starting tomorrow. How does that sound?
Hope you've had an amazing week! :)
