We are officially starting the move to Reno by going through every room and getting rid of things (like this huge pile of clothes) we don't want to take with. I donated all our stuff to a thrift store in Berkeley.
It was seafood night at N&M's. We had shrimp, abalone (a huge ocean snail), and oysters. N&M got the abalone from their neighbor, who went diving for them a while ago and froze one. I pounded it really good and made mini steaks.
Ok, so we decided to just keep our camping party rolling tonight, and even though we were totally within driving distance of home on Sunday night, we camping outside of Portola, CA anyways!!!! Yay! It's sunset.
Spontaneously, we called the Ashley National Forest to see if they had any yurts for rent tonight. We were able to stay at the Grizzly Ridge Yurt at 9,200 ft in the Uinta Mountains of Utah, north of Vernal. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!! I love yurts!!!!!
Had to go to the state run liquor store to get some "normal" micro-brewed beer. We got all kinds of mix and match beers from breweries around the state of Utah. I felt like we were doing something wrong. The Mormons really make you feel sleezy for buying beer.
Today we drove the Subaru up Mt. Evans, which is at 14,130 ft, and just a short drive from Golden. It is 20 ft higher than Pike's Peak (making the Mt Evans Scenic Byway the highest paved auto road in North America - woah!!!!), which we drove on January 7th, 2011 with the Daewoo.
