I liked this miner. He made out big on his claim!

So many pretties.

No one else was at the Bottle Forest so it was nice to explore without getting the the way of other people….or them getting in the way of my photos!

I think the cacti was my favorite!

I didn’t see much of the Hollywood sign, but I did see it! LA was not fun to drive in.

We made it to the end of the trail! I drove all…ALL…of Route 66. I thought I would cry when we made it to Santa Monica Pier, but LA sucked the life out of me, so I had no tears to shed.

This pigeon boy posed for us! What a way to end the trip!

Grannie Rose and the Redwoods.

I bought this cup and saucer from a kind old lady on Craigslist. There are different scenes from the California Redwoods on the two pieces. The lady I bought this from signed her emails as "Grannie Rose." That's too darn cute!

 

Cup.

 

And saucer.

 

In 2010 Eric and I traveled through the Redwoods. We stopped at most of the locations shown on the saucer.

 

 

 

 

Thank you Grannie Rose!
