My trip to Napa Valley on this day exactly a year ago is still freshly mapped in my mind. I missed an exit and ended up passing California 37 to Napa Valley from San Francisco. It was absolutely a pleasure to drive through the countryside, passing endless stretches of vineyards for what it felt like forever. It didn’t really matter that I returned sunburned from the scorching heat and merciless rays of the California summer. Instead, glad to been there and done that.
If you are around the west coast of USA, or making a trip to Las Vegas, you can’t miss out Death Valley. It is the lowest and driest point in North America. It offers a different kind of beauty compared to famous National Parks like Yellowstone. I got in Death Valley via CA-190 from Las Vegas. You can go for miles and miles without seeing any single soul around, and that is going to leave you wondering what if your car breaks down in the middle of the desert.
If you think Death Valley looks pretty small, wait till you see my next few pictures.
Put it on your bucket list of national parks!
Lake Tahoe is located at the border of California and Nevada. My trip there during summer was mesmerizing. I went along California 89 and U.S. 50, both which goes around the border of Lake Tahoe. I advice spending a couple of days there to soak in the beauty and laid-back atmosphere of the surroundings. Pretty good spot for a vacation I say.
