A Few Days In California

I got called to do some work in the San Francisco area, so Codi and I drove down mid last week. After 10 hours of driving and a full day of work, Codi and I got busy sight seeing.

Codi and I took the BART train to San Francisco. We saw Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, the really crummy part of China Town and Coit Tower.

It was a gorgeous day – almost 80 degrees. Almost no clouds, gentle breeze, etc. Wow.

Just off Pier 39 are a group of famous sea lions.

Codi and I walked to China Town based on directions from someone at Starbucks. Little did we know, we got directions to the back side (pun intended) of China Town. We were kinda grossed out, so we walked to Coit Tower.

Coit Tower was really nice. Amazing 360-degree views of the city.

Codi and I headed back to Oregon early this morning. Passing up Mt. Shasta is always a treat, especially when the weather is so perfect.

Just to the west edge of Mt. Shasta there’s an old, extinct volcano. The south face is dry, barren and the rocks look burning hot. The north face is covered in snow. It’s really wierd; like the Janus of mountains.

Codi took this photo of Mt. Shasta while we were going about 80mph. =)
