On Wednesday I drove out to visit my aunt in gold country. I learned a valuable lesson to not trust my GPS as it told me to turn left on a road over the mountains that turned into gravel after 20 minutes. I didn’t go that way!
Anyway, I got to my aunt’s house in Garden Valley around 9pm that night and went to bed. The next day I saw the local peacocks and did some work.
Then I went for a hike at Greenwood Creek, which was really amazing. I saw my first lizard of the trip (but not my last), but I did not get a good picture, so it’s not going to be on here. But here are some pictures of my hike.
I spent the rest of my time hanging out with my aunt and uncle, who are amazing. It was so nice to spend time with them. We went into Placerville and looked in antique shops, had iced tea, and took no pictures. It was lovely.
Next stop, San Francisco!
