My mother was here last week. Her plan was to visit my brother and his family in San Francisco, then she was coming to see me in Arizona. She was supposed to be here for two weeks, but I live in a quiet part of Arizona, and I know my mom … two weeks here and she’d be crawling the walls.
The solution? Road trip! (Honestly, I think a road trip is the solution to most problems.)
I drove to San Francisco to meet her, and the two of us took a week to wander along the Pacific Coast, up into Vegas and back down to Phoenix. It was a great trip and we saw some fantastic sites. Once again, I was awed by the diverse beauty of this part of the world, from the immense views of the ocean from the Pacific Coast Highway to Arizona’s stunning red rocks in Sedona.
