We made it home alive (last week. I am late writing, as per usual). Total mileage: about 2,380. It was a fun trip, though Yosemite was much too hot. It was about 100 degrees every day we were there. We ended up coming home a day early because we couldn’t stand it!
And it was a ton of driving on I-5, which is boring.
But I love the Aquarium in Monterey, and the mountains in Yosemite. It was nice to see them again. But it is also very nice to be home.
