Road Trip

The rock tunnel we drove through at one point during the trip

This past summer I went to California for two weeks with my younger sister and mom, it was just a "mother-daughters trip." Meaning my dad wasn't invited, not that he minded, seeing as he was sailing in Canada during our trip. One of the highlights of the vacation was our little road trip from San Francisco to Yosemite. We rented a car and drove for about four hours. We had so much fun blasting music from the radio (a mixture of old school rock and roll and the pop tunes always playing on the radio), having really deep conversations, and seeing the scenery. The drive from SF to Yosemite is probably one of the most beautiful routes I have ever traveled by, a lot of  the roads we took were surrounded by pastures with cows grazing on the grass and once we got closer to the mountains all the roads became very curvey and steep. I sat in the front for much of the drive on account of my anxiety when it comes to mountain passages (I get very nervous looking out the window and seeing the edge of the mountain so close). Other than my occasional panic attack, the drive was great. It was an experience I shall never forget because it was our first mother-daughters bonding trip and we certainly made the most of it, stopping off at vantage points on the drive to Yosemite to take in all the beauty and snap pictures. I highly recommend getting in the car and taking a road trip some time this summer, whether it is with your family, or friends because an enjoyable time will be had by all.
