We made it the rest of the way to California and I got to actually go over the Golden Gate Bridge on the way to the airport when it was time for me to leave. It was, obviously, a foggy day (and shockingly cooler than the town about two hours north where my sister now lives.) I loved getting to see all the Deco flourishes to the bridge, which I had previously only seen from the city at a distance and on the Alcatraz ferry.
We drove through Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and California. It was so neat to see how different all the various areas of our country are — and how drastically they change. Wyoming was flat flat flat until we got close to Utah and then boom! Winding, steep roads up and over the mountains with grades that our very-loaded minivan did not enjoy going down.
Then again, when we hit the western border of California at Tahoe, with mountain declines as well as evacuation alerts for fires in the forests to the north (I was sad to see that a few weeks later, Tahoe was also under evac orders).
It was a fabulous trip. I’d love to do it again – and take longer to see more along the way.
