Las Vegas

Las Vegas is an adult's Disney Land; lots of sights and sounds; great people watching; free entertainment; and many thousands of steps each day (ouch). The mimes are great!

Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park is a study in contrasts, from colorful rugged mountains to sand dunes to salt flats to "Bad Water" Basin, at an altitude of 282 feet below sea level.

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park has such unique scenery, from bald granite mountains to Giant Sequoia trees.

We drove to Crescent City, California, and saw the harbor, lighthouse, and noisy seals. We then drove through the Redwoods National and State Parks. When driving through the parks, it is like a cathedral in the trees. The sense is quietness and reverence. The trees are majestic.
