The Rest of My Trip

After the beautiful drive down the Oregon Coast we camped and ended up in the Redwoods of California.  Drove through beautiful wine country to stay the night in Windsor.  We met up with Audra's friend Tiffany who became our tour guide of San Francisco.  We spent the whole day in San Fran.  I now have this desire to move there...we'll see about that.  The next day it was up and on to the Oakland Temple.  This temple has a visitor center so we spent some time in there with the Sister Missionaries to have a tour.  I did a sealing session and then it was on the road.  We ended up in Tracy, California to stay the night with the next morning to get my oil changed and car cleaned.  Then it was off to Yosemite with horrible freezing weather.  After getting over the big mountain range we drove on into Death Valley - Valley of Death, I like to call it.  Boy how the weather changed drastically.  I was sweating to death the morning we woke up camping.  Then strangely into Armagosa Valley where my dear friend Holly lives.  We had lunch at the local Podunk casino and then headed for Sunny St. George.  I was ever so happy to be at the end.  Ivins has never looked so beautiful!!!  It was a great trip and I am SO glad for the opportunity, but for two weeks living out of a can get old after a while.  Give me a year and I'll want to do it again!
