Day 18: California
Across another salt flat, we get our first view of the Sierra Nevada
he views get more striking as we get higher in altitude. It's also a bit
cooler up here.
Lake Crowley. We ended up driving almost all around this by mistake.
A mysterious puff of smoke back in Tom's Place. Either something blew up or
the Others are coming.
Awesome mountain views in Tioga Pass, elevation 9945 feet, and about 80
degrees cooler than Death Valley. We went from 121 degrees to 40 degrees in
a couple of hours.
Another view of the mountains leading into Yosemite.
Uncle Nops enjoys the view.
Day 19: July 16, 2005
We head back on the road, past some orange groves and vineyards and such. We
did not stop at these lest Horizontal get a little too Sideways for comfort.
Crazy rolling wheat hills.
Wind power. We roll into Dublin, catch a movie, enjoy Applebee's, and enjoy
some booze in our hotel.
Day 20: July 17, 2005
Martinek's personal quest to find a Roy Harper cd leads both men to Frisco,
where a mega and overpriced record store awaits that just might
out-selection Best Buy.
The Oakland bridge.
After scoring said Harper CD in a part of town full of gay hippies and
hobos, we hit the Pacific Frigging Ocean.
Aight, good trip, let's head back!
Having officially run out of West, we wander around San Francisco trying to
find a way onto the 101 north.
Eventually, through the thick fog, we spot the Golden Gate Bridge (once
we're on it).
The fog is literally ONLY over Frisco. Here you can see the sharp dividing
line where the fog ends and clear blue sky begins.
What the fuck??
