We left our house on Aug 31 and split the drive into 2 days. We stayed at an out of the way little bed and breakfast the first night, which I don't have any pictures of. They raised goats and had chickens and ducks and we had a whole 2 bedroom cottage to ourselves. It is so nice to have the kids have their own rooms on vacation. It was super cute and really fun and I wished I had made the effort to dig the camera out. The next day we drove to Angel's Camp CA and the final drive through the mountains was so beautiful but rough as well. The kids were done and those last 89 miles was slow going through all the switch backs.
