Here is a rough picture of our trip to LA and back. We had to be in Appleton, WI for our son’s recital, then in Ojai, CA 10 days later (for a wedding). We saw rain, flooded fields, snow, Devil’s Tower, more windmills than you can count, crossed thru the Continental Basin (never knew it existed), dust storms, fires (the hills of LA), desert and cactus, white sand, a thunderstorm that made us detour 150 miles. We looked for diamonds and I panned for – and found gold! We camped with some friends, visited others and had a great 5 weeks on the road.
