Road Trip – Part the Third, June 2010

January 27th, 2013 by

In the first parts of my trip, I left Los Angeles and wound my way north through California, from the Bay Area, up to Lassen Volcanic Park , and then north to Lava Beds National Monument. From there we headed north into Oregon, heading to Crater Lake National Park. After that , Jen had to head back home, and after a farewell at the Klamath Falls Airport, I headed west, continued up the Oregon coastline, and eventually made my way to Portland.

We left off, having just left Lassen National Park, and we headed off to the next part of our trip – up into the north east corner of California to Lava Beds National Monument, stopping at the way to look at a truly lovely waterfall.

Road Trip – Part the First, June 2010

On June 16, 2010, just a day or two after graduation, I embarked on a road trip, leaving LA and heading north on the I-5. As my brief photo introduction says, it was 15 days and 3666 miles , three states, several parks, lots of birds, and general good times. I got up to Seattle in a zig-zag, and came straight back down in a tearing hurry, and it was pretty awesome.

I was so very tired
At the top of the cinder cone, I was pretty wrecked

Warner Springs – June 6-9,2010 …and Commencement

January 6th, 2013 by

Right before commencement, I went south with my mother for a few days, staying in Warner Springs, and checking out Palomar, Julian, and the general surrounding area. It’s a nice place, sort of away from the city, and pretty hot, but not yet really the desert. The hot springs were pretty nice, too, and just driving around and seeing the area was a great couple of relaxing days.

it's a church!
I guess they’re saying “come on in”
