Mom’s visit

October 27, 2008

I am back! September was a busy and crazy month! Plus I came back and Midterms were happening… phew! October is crazy as well…

My mom came to visit us for my birthday and stayed for the month of September. It was her first time in San Francisco, and she loved it.


We traveled a lot! We rented an RV and headed to Vegas. The first night we stopped at Midpines, just outside Yosemite Valley. The campground was really nice, with lots of trees and tranquility.





We spent the following day in Yosemite, and spent the second night in Lee Vining outside the park after a harrowing trip up and over Tioga Pass (Our RV was a Tioga!)

The next day we went to Mono Lake. Mono Lake is an oasis in the dry Great Basin and a vital habitat for millions of migratory and nesting birds. We saw incredible tufa towers.






We headed to Las Vegas thru Death Valley. It took us longer than expected and the altitude didn’t suit my mom, but we survived! We stayed at the campground in Circus Circus right on the Strip. We thought it was going to be crazy, but it ended up being really nice considering being in the middle of everything. We decided to stay there for 3 nights, and not to go to the Grand Canyon because we had enough of driving.





Then we went to Los Angeles to spend time with Michael’s parents. We had a really nice visit and my mom really enjoyed it too.




That is for now, I will post New York soon. Thanks for reading!
