1. The drive is longer than taking the 5 North, but SO much prettier.
2. Jonathan gets car sick on the winding roads of the coast.
3. When traveling with little ones, stop often...even if it is just to run around for a minute.
|Eating our picnic lunch. "Ham" anyone?!|

|And we drove up as high as the clouds.|
|The detour took us through a valley which was also an Army base. Not a bad view, eh?|
|No sweeter view than this.|
