Road Trip Out West III

I’m winding up our road trip out West, I also realize it has been a long time coming, but since my last post I’ve cleaned our basement and had a huge yard sale.  It feels good to get rid of some of our clutter, especially from the basement,  so now I’m free to concentrate on fall!   

The photo’s below were taken in Clear Lake, one of the largest natural freshwater lakes in California one of the oldest on the continent, and you can see the ancient volcano, Mount Kanata from a distance.

My daughter and her husband kayak across this lake weekly to enjoy dinner at a wonderful Mexican Restaurant. Doesn’t that sound like fun?

We stopped by the Grand Canyon on the way home, as you can see it was so crowded.  I did manage to make my way through the crowd, and take a photo of one of the rare Condors.  LavenderandLinen.blogspot.com

Arizona

While driving through Arizona, we decided to stop at the Cadillac Ranch. It’s basically old Cadillac’s buried in the ground.  Everyone brings a can of spray paint, and sprays on their own design.

We stopped in New Mexico and spent the night, but since the temperature’s were reaching 115 degree’s, everyday, so we decided to discontinue our sight seeing there and in Texas, and make our way back to the bluegrass state.

We had a wonderful and safe trip, but it’s great to be back home.

Thank’s everyone for stopping by today.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend, see you soon!

Wow Mary, what a great road trip you took to CA! Thanks so much for sharing the whole trip and what wonderful photos and great memories you experienced! I have never traveled like that before and how nice to able to bring your dog along too. I took a trip to CA with my family this summer to visit our good friend and loved it. Take care.

Mary,
What a wonderful trip you took recently. I am familiar with Clear Lake very much, as I am a California girl and have heard of most of the lakes here. The tree pictures are grand, and they look so beautiful with the angle that you took them. I've never heard of the cadilac cars before, how interesting. So glad you had such a good time on your trip.

Happy Fall!

love,
~Sheri
