Day 9 - Wear some flowers in your hair
Would if I had any. Flowers or hair.
Mammoth Lakes to San Francisco via Yosemite
Ethan spent much of last night scouring the internet for information on the super volcanoes of the Mammoth Lakes area. Apparently some are reasonably active and there are a fair number of earthquakes each day. Mono Lake looks pretty cool with the volcanic cone in the middle :
I suspect that this research and his desire to put as much distance between himself and the area might have been responsible for the short cut we took this morning - although Ethan swears blind it was the sat nav. I have to say that the CoPilot app on the phone has been £5 very well spent and has got us pretty much everywhere, but it was clearly having a bad day today. The dirt track that it took us down didn't seem to have any purpose other than as a chipmunk thoroughfare. I swear that they were stopping and laughing at us. To be fair the track got us where we needed to go but was a little hairy for a while!
Yosemite was as ludicrously scenic as expected, although we seem to have most of it in soft focus due to a greasy smear on the camera lense :-( The jury is out on whose fingerprint it is...
A long, slow drive from Yosemite to San Francisco (via the windiest road I have ever driven down)
with another sat nav wig out just as we hit the city... of all the places that you don't need it!
