On my last night in Los Angeles we decided to head to Santa Monica Pier. It was crowded as per everywhere else in LA, but wow, it’s such a beauty. I love the old school neon lights on everything, plus the numerous souvenir stands along the wooden boardwalk. Fun fact: Santa Monica Pier is where the famous Route 66 ends. Anything related to a John Mayer (cover) song is always cool.
Of all the places we stopped by throughout the road trip, I was most excited about Yosemite. So after a nights’ stay at Mammoth Lakes, we drove about an hour and arrived at Yosemite Valley, where our accommodation was at.
We left Camp Nelson for a short stopover at Mammoth Lakes, before heading to Yosemite. It was rainy when we got there and even through our stay, the weather was overcast.
I first read about the Giant Sequoia trees a few years ago in a National Geographic magazine. I remember it was a cover of a guy hanging from an enormous tree and when I saw it I was just so amazed and never thought such huge trees even exist.
The trip to Kernville was originally intended as just a pass-through, to get to the giant Sequoias / Sequoia National Forest. So falling in love with it was completely unexpected.Located in the South of the Sierra Nevada, all I can describe about the place is that it’s a classic American small town.
In the summer of 2015 my friend and I took a road trip to explore the West Coast. I flew into LA and we began from there. I hadn’t visited America before so I was pretty excited to see to see the country with fresh eyes. My only impression of the states only came from hollywood tv shows, and I’d never thought I would get the chance to visit so soon.
