On the Road Again

With a hitch in my heart The Chiweenie Brothers and I head for AZ. It’s been wonderful seeing family and friends. Hard to leave even though in reality I’ve seen more of them this past month than I ever did during any given year living in Burney.

Susanville offered some challenges, and for a brief moment I regretted changing the van’s name from Freedom to MisAdventure. That dang Murphy!! Fries needed to see a vet for an allergic reaction and I locked the keys in the van which cost $100 to get retrieved. Ice is $3.79.  That being said, I have to say Susanville has some of the nicest most concerned and helpful people I have ever run into.

Topaz Lake on Hwy 395 gave us some nice fall color.

I love the old court house in Bridgeport.

Here’s our view from Lone Pine Campground, the Alabama Hills , west of Lone Pine on Hwy 395   DSC_0146Lone Pine Campground at Whitney Portal Rd
We take our time, enjoying the lovely weather and the sights going over Hwy 395 that are very different than the last time we drove this highway in spring of 2016. Then there was still snow on the ground. What IS the same, though, it’s cold up on top at 8000 feet!

If you plan on heading over 395 gas up anywhere but Lee Vining ….

Thanks for stopping by!  We are going to do more traveling per day than normal and get to AZ quicker.  There’s only one planned stop and that’s for us to see the old ghost town of Bodie.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Shawna
