Trying to schedule a short Alfa getaway has been a challenge. Between each of us having a colonoscopy, my getting dental bridge work, various other routine medical appointments, and a few days (not consecutive) of having hired workmen in the house, a getaway keeps getting put off.
The weather has also been a consideration. It s February after all!
But today I booked a spot at the Pinnacles National Monument for next weekend. When we were there in October we learned that in spring there are plentiful wildflowers at the park. We said we would have to come back in spring. And we are.
At this time of the year there are shuttle buses from the RV campground to the upper trailheads. This works for us because we don't have a tow car. In fall we hiked to one of the upper trailheads, but were wore out by the time we got there and so didn't go very far up the high trail before turning back.
This will also give us a chance to use our Senior Pass for the first time. With 50% off, the RV spot is only $18 per night.
So the Alfa will finally get a little exercise., and so will we! This is good.
I'm also making progress on planning a longer trip in June and July!
