Eureka, a Greek word means “I have found it!”, is a city in northern California. The city is rich in history, you could read more about it here. Eureka is definitely the word you would say when you get there because it is like a hidden gem that is amazingly full of interesting colorful old style houses and buildings. When we were there, we just couldn’t get enough of it. Here are some proofs:) Read more
Glass beach is located in Fort Bragg, California. It’s about 3-hour drive up north of San Francisco. The shore is covered with small colored stones (see pictures) called beach glass. Beach glass came from trash such as glass and other appliances that were dumped on those sites (now known as glass beaches) many years ago. Over the years, those pieces of trash were broken down into beautiful little stones by waves.
Having heard a lot about it and seen beautiful pictures of it, we decided to change our plan and drove off for 5 hours to see it. It was definitely not a worthwhile experience (maybe it would be if we went there years ago when there were more beach glass). The beach itself also smells fishy. However, if you happen to be near the area, you should definitely go check out and judge for yourself :). It’s free and parking is also free and there’s plenty!
Today was the opposite of yesterday. We did a lot of walking and hiking. I felt tired right after our swimming in Sand Harbor. But I love Lake Tahoe. It’s too bad that we didn’t get to go to Heavenly. We will come back for sure :). Here’re some highlight pictures of our day: Read more
A lot of time was spent on driving and stopping at view points today. But it was like driving in a magical world because everything was spectacular. Spending one day at Yosemite is like spending 10 mins or less at Disneyland. I just can’t wait to go back and explore more!!! Here are some pictures of our trip today :) Read more
We left our house at 3 AM today. It was a really cool relaxing drive. Our first and only stop today was Sequoia National Park although we also wanted to make it to Sierra National Forrest. However, our day at Sequoia today was awesome. Everywhere was breathtakingly beautiful. Especially, the view from Moro Rock made our whole day in Sequoia way worth it! Read more
