More road trip!

We spent a second day in San Francisco and honestly, we think this city is overrated.  The Golden Gate Bridge is cool, but other than that we didn't really see anything spectacular.  And any way you try to get around is kind of a nightmare.  But we did see Fisherman's wharf, take a bus tour and a sunset cruise.  We really wanted to go to Alcatraz but apparently you have to book those tours weeks in advance.  We did not know this.  But we did sail by it on our cruise.
The sea lions that hang out on the pier are also entertaining.  They are active and loud during the day and then in the evening they are all asleep.

Then we headed over to Yosemite National Park which did not disappoint.  The scenery was spectacular and the squirrels were really tame.  The only downside, it's a little harder to get around and see stuff than at yellowstone.  Everything is kind of spread out and you need to take the bus around to most places in the valley or hike a long way so with just a few days it's hard to be effecient.  But we did get to see some cool stuff. However, some of the lakes and waterfalls are dry this time of year.

Last for today is Death Valley.  Most of what we say was dirt and rocks but the sand dunes were pretty cool.  The pictures don't really do it justice.  And just in case you were wondering the highest temp we hit was 118. And yes, that's hot.

 Tonight we are staying in Vegas, did not win big but had fun.  Tomorrow on to  Utah.

Wow, that's so cool. Wish we had time to go to Yellowstone.
