California Here We Come

Winter has been a little disappointing. There was really only 1 snow that was worth anything. So, we are ready for Spring. March is here and there are daffodils and crocuses coming up outside. The last 2 days have felt Spring-like, but I'm not sure how long it will last. What's keeping me going right now (as I go through my 2nd sinus infection in 4 weeks) is California! The Colonel is going to take off during my Spring Break at the end of March.

We talked about going to Paris, but just couldn't find any good deals. I looked around on the internet, and found that the National Parks website has Pre-planned Routes that include the parks. So, we decided on a trip to Yosemite, King's Canyon, Sequoia, and Big Sur National Parks. We'll fly in and out of San Francisco, then do the parks and a little bit of the coast. It may still be a little chilly in some places, but we'll be in California, so that's okay.

So we have an outline for the trip and plane tickets...that's it. We still need to get a car and figure out where we are going to stay along the way. If you have any ideas for us, please pass them along!
