May 2016 Western Trip - Part 1

June 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

We took a three week road trip that began in May and took us through a little bit of June.  We wanted to visit some sights out west; some where we had been years ago and other new ones that were a little more off the beaten path and previous routes.  The main destination was supposed to be Yosemite National Park in California, but due to some weather issues, that goal was not achieved.  More about that in the narration of the slide show for that specific part of the trip. 

Since this was a longer trip, there will be more slideshows to break it up a bit.  I'll try to keep these between 7-12 minutes each and they will appear here on the blog, going forward over the next few weeks/months.

We had a great time and saw lots of interesting sights.  Other than the Yosemite situation, we had really good weather, but we did hit the extremes with 102 degrees at Saguaro National Park in the Tucson area and 38 degrees and snow while visiting the Bodie Ghost Town on the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Below is an overview map of our travels.
