Postcards From the Road - Heading South

We're heading for home now, but definitely taking the long way, with stops in Ashland, San Jose, Las Vegas, and the Grand Canyon. 

At a rest stop in Oregon. I'm always amazed by the loveliness of moss.

Emigrant Lake, where we were camp hosts for a year. Looks like it's doing just fine without us.

Making spring rolls in my cousin's kitchen in Ashland.
Mt Shasta was hiding behind clouds. I was disappointed to not see it but happy to know were were in the presence of the base chakra of Planet Earth - the Inspiration Center of the planet. Pretty powerful place.

Lake Shasta was full to the brim, and healthier looking than I've seen it in years. I think it would be fun to hold a cooking class on a houseboat... anybody interested?

I wonder if we're related?

Three giant dogs share my sister's house in San Jose. Samantha, the "baby,"  is such a sweet silly girl.
I'm back in San Jose, in the neighborhood I grew up in. Walking the dogs with my sister this morning, I felt like I was walking to school. Something about the smell of this place, and the feel of the morning air... nice. We're going over to Santa Cruz today for a little beach time. Pictures will follow, of course!

Wish You Were Here!

It's nice when you go back to somewhere you're familiar Kim, it feels like 'home'.
You're nearly there...
