Steve (my hubby) loves to take jaunts here and there. He can pack more into a 24 hour block of time than anyone I know! We just returned to today from a fun trip.
Steve's Itinerary -
DEPART PORTLAND AIRPORT 4:15PM TUESDAY
Land in Fresno / pick up rental car and drive 2 1/2 hours to Monterey / spend the night.
WEDNESDAY - Swing through Monterey and check out the FANTASTIC aquarium (check out the quilt that was on display)
we had lunch at Pebble Beach
And dinner at the Hog's Breath (Clint Eastwood's restaurant) in Carmel
Then we drove back (2 1/2 hours) to Fresno and spent the night there.
THURSDAY we drove to King's Canyon and the Sequoia National Park (2 + hours).
We are with General Sherman (the tree has a name) in this photo (2,200 years old). We also hiked down to Crystal Caves and took that tour. The hike out was equivalent to climbing 30 flights of stairs in 20 minutes (you would think I would be skinny).
The views in the Park were stunning........
We spent that night back in Fresno then flew home Friday morning. 585 miles of driving in 54 hours. And lots and lots of great memories!
