We went camping at Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta, California. We had a great time watching the pelicans on the lake, hiking in the desert, and checking out the Salton Sea and the Joshua Tree South BLM lands for possible other camping.
In our 6 days on the California Central Coast we saw an elephant seal rookery, thousands of monarch butterflies, we fed ostriches, enjoyed the beaches, and found the little mermaid in Solvang, CA.
These are our top highlights for what to see and do in the Napa Valley and San Francisco East Bay Area.

If you haven’t been to the Bavarian-style town of Leavenworth, WA you need to go check it out. We kicked off our holiday season with a trip to the number one Christmas town in the USA and were not disappointed.
We hitched up our trailer and headed for the US border for the first time since covid-19 closed it. The US-Canadian border opened for non-essential travel to fully vaccinated travelers on November 8, 2021. With our vaccine records and passports in hand we hit the road a few weeks later.
