Years seem to go by much faster than you think they will, but in that time we’ve certainly put a lot of miles on our vehicle and gained a new appreciation for the diversity and beauty that makes up this amazing planet we live on.
California itself is incredibly diverse. We lived on the edge of Los Angeles, next to the dry and dusty Santa Susana Mountains. But we visited gorgeous gardens, and beaches, and orange groves, and waterfalls, and giant trees, and vineyards, and endless ranch land, and tar pits, and snow in the mountains, and hot desert. It was amazing.
We drove both ways and were able to visit some pretty incredible places like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone.
So, now that I feel rather steeped in American geography, I hope to spend the next few months taking a virtual tour of some of Canada’s excellent National Parks. I think it will be fun.
