The Golden State Capitol

Had to at least stop through Sacramento to see the capitol building.

The Valley Floor

Oooof. I can barely walk! Boy am I sore!


Not quite ready to be finished, I headed out to Yosemite National Park to give myself an early present in the form of a hike to the top of Half Dome — something that I’ve always wanted to do. And what cross-country road trip would be complete without a stop in Yosemite!?

6:25 hours to the top
4:50 hours back down
12:53 hours total travel time with stops
33,738 steps taken
4,803 foot elevation gain
16.09 total miles door-to-door
4 liters of water
2 blisters
1 happy camper!

Best. Shower. Ever.

The End

Almost exactly 2 years to the day this trip has come to an official close. 35 States visited and ~19,000 miles driven. As a fitting end to my journey, the Space Shuttle Endeavour took it’s final voyage to it’s new home in Los Angeles, passing over the San Francisco bay for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — just like my road trip. Sad it’s over. Now what???

Coming To A Close

In Sonoma now, and just a few miles now from closing the loop on the circumnavigation of North America. Hard to believe.
