Usually the ride/flight home after a trip can be a bit deflating. Gone is the excitement of looking forward to a new place and new experiences; thus one is likely to be either plain exhausted emotionally (physically too) or just sad that the vacation is over.
However, the long ride from Vegas to the San Francisco Bay Area is ..... long. Stretching the vacation time more compared to flying. Plus, I love road trips and I vowed to enjoy every single minute of the ride.
Sharing the driving chores did not materialize this time around. As we left Vegas, it was very breezy and gloomy. At some stretches of the road the wind was so strong our little hybrid was shaking. We could see in the distance what appeared to be dust storm. I was glad I didn't offer to drive the first shift.
It was a long drive, we had the dusty breezy patch, then there was drizzle and gloom and cold when we stopped for coffee, then beautiful blue skies close to home.
Here's what we saw and photographed along the road.
Did you feel like this post is as long as the drive from Vegas to the Bay Area was? I wouldn't blame you. I got carried away taking all those photos.
