Since I came back out West, I have been nursing a knee injury that has limited my ability to hike and bike. In a sense I feel like I have become a tourist instead of a traveler if that makes sense.
Starting from Oregon, I dropped into California staying along the coast and visiting The Redwoods National and State Park. Big Trees!
The weather looked good so I headed for higher ground. On my way to the Sierra’s, I visited the gold mining towns of Jamestown, Sonora and Columbia.
After a little history I went to Yosemite and toured the NP for a few days. The park was beautiful! No Yosemite Falls or Mirror Lake in the current drought conditions. I am sure I would have stayed longer, but without hiking it was difficult to get away from the crowds.
I am on my way to Arizona making a full loop from last March.
