Road Trip Day 9: Drive to Cannon Beach

Before we left the bustling little town of Florence we stopped at a gift shop I remembered going to during our first visit in 2008. Brad purchased some locally made goat’s milk soap for me that I bought back then and have been raving about for nearly four years. I was amazed and very excited to see they still were selling it. It has the most natural smelling fragrance and is my favorite bar soap.

Road Trip Day 8: Drive to Florence, OR

The day before was hard, but it was all worth it when we woke up at Gold Bluffs Beach Campground to this...

Road Trip Day 7: Drive to Gold Bluffs Beach

I never imagined this drive of a mere 320 miles would take us 13 hours. But that is exactly how long it took us to drive from San Francisco to Orick/Redwoods National Park.

Road Trip Day 6: San Francisco

This day started off with a hearty breakfast at a little place called Mama’s. We knew it was popular so we headed up there around 7:00AM to be sure to secure our place in line (the restaurant opened at 8).

Road Trip Day 5: San Francisco

We started off yesterday by taking the municipal bus to the Land's End trailhead. It was freezing and I was afraid it was going to be a miserable day, but once we began walking I warmed up and our activities got off to a great start.

Road Trip Day 4: San Francisco

Yesterday morning we woke up early, like hours before the sun rose early. We really wanted to head down to Pier 39 before the rest of the tourists got there and enjoy the sunrise over the ocean. After quite the debacle figuring out which bus to take and running around like chickens with our heads cut-off we made it to the pier. It was, for the lack of a better word, magical. We were the only people there, most of the sea lions were still sleeping, and the sunrise was amazing.

Road Trip Day 3: Drive to San Francisco

After our drive yesterday the short 225 miles to San Francisco was more than welcomed.

Road Trip Day 2: Drive to Reno

520 miles and what seemed like the never ending drive later, we were in Reno. Our hopes weren't too high after such a wonderful time in SLC, but we laughed a lot and had a good experience.

Road Trip Day 1: Drive to Salt Lake City

Yesterday we drove 503 miles from Greeley, CO to Salt Lake City, UT. Our hotel was located in West Valley and, despite its niceness, we were skeptical about Salt Lake in general, it seemed crowded and very industrial. Our concerns about the town were quickly quieted when we drove into downtown. The mountains frame the entire city creating gorgeous views almost everywhere you look.

Asparagus Socca Pizza

Just this Saturday I walked across a stage with my hands on my B.S. in Dietetics. It has been a long...very long...four years but I know it was all very well worth it. I got to spend an incredible weekend with my two brothers, Brad, and my parents. The time we had together was, without a doubt, the highlight of my year.
