crater, aliens, and a big hole. a wee wimpy road trip before summer school.

2.5 weeks before I start teaching summer school - so why not try to squeeze in a wee road trip. this is not a tale of derring do - just a visit to some cool places with as many twisty roads as possible in between.

the road sofa


I'm in tonopah, nv right now. got snowed on at crater lake. yikes.
I'll post better pix when I get home.

headed to the extra terrestrial highway tomorrow. then onto the grand canyon. back on route 66, the 395 and a toodle through tuolumne meadows:)
