Martin discovered that there was a cave close by. We love caves so of course I was game.
We arrived at the cave tour destination. We had a small wait till the next tour so we took this time to enjoy a bite to eat.
It was a long way down the hill to the water. This brought back that awful trip and fall I took as a kid.
We were so happy to see our tour guide not wearing a mask. This was going to be fun cause we get to be normal not controlled.
Since I took a million pictures. So not to bore you I only shared a few. This cave was so high up into the mountain. It was super wet and not cold at all. Absolutely beautiful.
We left Shasta and headed to Placerville. Someone special to us lives there.
We ubered a ride to meet Kara for dinner. Kara lived with us in Queen Creek for a year while she was going to school. Then she decided to go back to Eureka. It was a great visit. And to enjoy a beer at a restaurant that doesn’t require a mask was so appreciated. Kara gave us a ride back to our moho. We said our goodbyes and see ya soons. I thought I left my mask that I didn’t have to wear in her car until I noticed something.
With no end plan we decided to go to mammoth mountain. Our timing has been perfect with the weather. Behind the storm we were blessed with the most amazing drive.
After settling into Mammoth rv park we checked the cameras at home. Still snowing.
I was craving pizza. We found a place with take out only and it was just a short walk away.
So worth the hike through the snowy streets.
This rv park was like a parking lot with power and water along the sides. For one night we only needed power.
It must be 5:00 somewhere.
The next morning we decided to take a morning walk to get some coffee. Well let’s just say after having Strawbucks for two weeks Starbucks was not worth the money or the effort. We couldn’t sit inside. So we sat here outside in the cold.
As we left Mammoth we headed to Pahrump, NV. Another beautiful drive.
We arrived in Mesquite NV for a visit with Martin’s brother Tim and his wife Nancy. We had such a nice chat and dinner.
So far three weeks into our trip we have not traveled the same freeway twice.
Another spectacular drive.
After almost 4 weeks on the road when we get home we traveled 3,000 miles and only traveled twice on the same road at Holbrook, AZ. We have traveled past the Meteor Crater and never stopped to visit. Today was the day.
Getting closer to home we could feel the excitement and the sadness all at once. Being that it was getting late in the day we elected to stop one last time in Springerville. The roads at home would be muddy. Grocery shop in the morning then hit the road for home.
When we opened the front door you could smell the orange blossoms from the clementine tree.
As we unloaded we tracked through the mud squishing back and forth. Once unloaded it was a rest day. Chilling on the sofa is our favorite family time.
Thank you my husband who drove the whole 3,000 miles. Hope you all enjoyed our trip as much as we did.
Till next time…..
