Colorado >>> California
This Spring, adventure is in the air! I decided to get together with friends and plan a trip from Colorado out to the sunny West Coast in California! We hit the road around noon mountain time. We had snacks, c.d.'s, a great iPhone playlist, our cameras and all our things packed for the adventure of a lifetime!
We went North through Fort Collins and up to Wyoming, then West to Utah. We spent the night in Salt Lake City. The next morning, we woke up, got breakfast and coffee at Denny's and then continued our route!
The drive to California involved a few detours that we weren't expecting but we were happy to take them!! We were forced off of i80 due to snow and spent the night in Lake Tahoe! We were lucky enough to find a room for the night and ended up having so much fun on our mini vacation in the California mountains!
We ended up watching Rick and Morty on the laptop and really enjoying our evening in a warm room while it was snowing and blowing all over the place outside. The next morning we woke up slow and enjoyed our morning in the mountains before headed west and continuing our journey to the coast!
Of course we stopped quite a few times to take photos and enjoy the beautiful scenery! When we finally made it to San Francisco we were beyond excited to be in the sunshine, surrounded by the palm trees and smelling the ocean air.
