Thanks for all the great comments on the last post!
I spent the last day and a half with my sister's family, which includes my mom.
We played a lot of Scrabble, and it was good catching up.
Today was a traveling day. We rolled back through the Mojave Desert, skirted along the edge of Death Valley, and ended up in Lee Vining, the backdoor to Yosemite. That brings the total miles so far 1,854.
