Long trip from Houston to Denver, and then four days in Denver - all to get Michael started in his new school!
A day trip to San Onofre State Beach. Famous for its waves (they were amazing!), the quiet (it's miles and miles of beach protected by a high cliff, the Camp Pendleton USMC Base, and most importantly a $15 day use fee), and occasional nude use.
A quick, last trip to the snow. The season, already dry, was terminated by a bout of hot air that made everything melt that was still trying to stick to the mountains. We even drove past Mt. Whitney, they highest point in the Lower 48, and there was barely any snow on top!
