Hi and Hello!
Here it is. At least.
(Just click on the pictures to get a bigger foto.)
I set up this web page to show you some of my holiday photos: Here they are!!
Our tour started in San Francisco. We went down Highway No. 1 to Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur Santa Barbara to Los Angeles. The weather was quite cold and foggy till LA, so I put no photos of this side of „Sunny California“ in here. It was kind of depressing an we didn’t stop for long at the shores and beaches.
First evening in LA the sun came out 🙂 (it was that campgroud near the freeway).
Remember the packing and unpacking every day??
She did her job very well and after two weeks it was very hard to say goodbye…
Next day we went to Universal Studios. The day started quite cold. And after the „Jurassic Park ride“ it was getting even colder – no wonder if you are totally wet. Bun soon the sun broke through the clouds and it was getting really hot.
The second day in LA (I think it was Friday) we visited Disneyland. Look at those tiny little houses.
And I almost touched Goofy on the big Parade!
And then there was San Diego. (kind of “SAND Diego – hehehe”)
I visited the Zoo and catched a peek at the Panda (San Diego Zoo is famous for it’s Pandas).
And there was this evening on the beach with fried chicken and salad and… the sunset!
Sunday was for free, so we just took a lazy summerday on Venice Beach. Watched the muscle-man work out and the Baywatch Beautys 😉
The second week of the tour started in LA and we were to go East into the desert. Soon it got REALLY hot. 110 degrees Farenheit (this is about 43 degrees Celsius) were almost too hot to take a breath. We looked for every piece of shadow.
(Thank god the cars over there have an AC!) We had a look at the Yoshua trees and went to stay overnight in Lake Havasu. We washed our clothes and it was useless to tumble them – the weather outside was just as hot as inside a tumble-dryer… (puh).
Then we reached GRAND CANYON.
Such a wonderful sight!
On our way back from Grand Canyon we visited Angel and Juan Delgadillo in Seligman on Route 66. Remember the “small coke with ice?”
and Adam had a shaving in the Barber shop.
We reached Las Vegas. The hotel-pool was GOOD. And in the evening we went on top of Stratosphere tower. I think it was about 315m high. An there on top there was this “Big Shot” and a Rollercoaster! FUN! We spent some money in the casinos…
and left next morning to visit Death Valley
Lowest point in western hemisphere…
and this water is REALLY BAD water.
On our way back we stopped early in the morning at Mono Lake
and went on to Yosemite National Park.
The Tioga Pass had been opened again just 3 days before and now we knew why.
The weather and nature here in Yosemite is great. Lots of waterfalls
and we went hiking to se one of them from nearby.
But it got to wet on the way so we went down again.
and watched some Squirrel trying to get food from the visitors.
We spent the evening in the very old „Iron Door Saloon“ and drove back to San Francisco next day.

It was the best holidays I ever had. Thank You!
