Back in CA

Continuing south on US 395, we soon crossed back into California, but first we filled the gas tank in the RV.  Those California gas prices will kill you.  Utilizing my favorite, I directed Ron to the cheapest gas station.  I never thought to take pictures, but it would have made interesting blog fodder.  Because the canopy over the pumps was not high enough to clear the air conditioner on the RV, he carefully pulled in the end spot, staying far enough away that the air conditioner was outside the canopy, but close enough for the hose to reach.  Everybody was watching.  We were the entertainment for the day.

Soon we were on our way.  We were surprised when five Ferraris passed us.  I caught the last one passing us in a no passing zone.  Maybe those petty laws don't apply to them.

Part of our trip was through a pretty canyon along the West Walker River.

Oh-oh.  More snow.

After meeting back up with Diana and Phil. we went to see the pretty Travertine Hot Springs near Bridgeport.

Personally, I'm not a fan of hot springs, but I did stick my feet in.

And Ron felt compelled to do a little work on one of the pools.


  1. That hot spring looks delish! IF Ron gets bored this winter y'all can swing by here I got plenty of DIY's he can dive into~ just sayin...:o)

  2. They should have given you a discount on the gas after the crowd you drew in! :cD

  3. I'm not a real hot springs fan either. Toes are just fine. Can't believe you guys have already moved on. We're still in Reno with all the motorcycles.

  4. OK, last year, so many blogs reported travels in Colorado, we had to spend the summer there this year. Now several of our blogging buddies are driving on US 395. Is that where we are headed in 2014? Wait and see.

  5. OOOH those hot springs look good. Hwy 395 is on my to do list.

  6. So you did stick your feet in! Glad that mystery was solved.
