All packed up and ready to go!

All packed up and ready to go!

It’s been three days since I got back from my road trip, and now that the worst of my bug bites have subsided, I’m back to posting daily. Here’s a sort of play-by-play of our trip… Enjoy!

This isn't meaningful or anything, but it's the first picture I've ever managed to take of Penny without her thrashing her head like she's at a metal concert.

We woke up early on Monday morning to wrap up packing. By 8:30, we were on the road, beginning the first leg of our five-hour road trip. Stanford was our first stop, where we took an hour-long tour of the campus, which is beautiful. [sobs over GPA]

This was $45. My mom bought it to ‘motivate’ me.

After that, we drove through San Francisco and to Berkeley! We only stopped for a short while in SF itself, and I didn’t get the chance to take any great photographs or anything…

yep, this is basically it

We self-toured Berkeley for about an hour before piling back into the car and setting out for the second five-hour stretch to Yosemite.

A building at Berk! Notice anything odd? πŸ˜‰

Since we spent way more time in Yosemite than we did looking at colleges, I’ll be making more trip diaries about our time on the road about each day in Yosemite. Thanks for reading!
