We finally arrived in California on day three of our trip. The drive went by pretty fast with lots of stops at fruit stands and the In-N-Out drive-thru. That night we stayed at a hotel on route 66 in Barstow. I was later told by many Californians that wasn't a good idea. Oh well. I didn't think it was all that bad. The hotel pool was a much needed break after driving through the mojave desert all day. I got to drink a cold beer and listen to my cali playlist I made for my ipod while watching the palm trees sway in the breeze.
I was so excited to be in California.
