We've been rocked by the flu and a string of colds for four weeks and it's really making me itchy for a trip. (House arrest! Hermit alert! Wary of the measles outbreak!) We have so much California exploring to do. Last summer we spent three days with friends in Napomo and spent time in San Luis Obispo, Montaña De Oro, and Pismo Beach. It was WOW. Though both of my parents are from Northern California, I've never spent more than a few days in Yosemite Valley and the surrounding area until now. It's incredible how much there is to do and see. Any tips of where to go or what to do? My friend Ashley has amazing tips for where to go and what to do in California.
