So day one of our trip was actually pretty boring. And we didn't really have all that many pictures - i guess you'll have to use your imagination. (So i guess i could've posted this a long time ago then, eh?) For me, the day really began on Sunday, June 22nd - my birthday! I had to go to work that night. The original intent was for Jen to pick me up from work Monday morning and leave directly from there, but of course things didn't quite work out that way.
We arrived at the packed trailhead sometime between 10 and 11, finally found a parking space and reclined our chairs and tried to sleep (yes, in the car). Of course we hardly slept at all, and a playful Aaron in the middle of the night didn’t help either.
More evidence of the drive-by photographer.
Uh no, that's not a radar detector - it's an XM radio receiver... or something. Some people chose not to sleep on the way. But they were cute, so it was okay.
Distance traveled: Over 650 miles
Time traveled (but not like Back to the Future): Over 10 hours
Total cost so far: $272 (inlcudes lame ballhead)
