Summer memories

As autumn sets in I long for summer and I spent a wonderful afternoon going through and editing photos from our family RV trip in Northern CA today. It was a really awesome adventurous camping trip where we relaxed a lot and spent a lot of time hanging out by the fire while cooking. Here are 10 favorit moments and after these please continue the 10-on-10 journey to Trine's beautiful portraits of children in nature.  

 Colorfull flowers by the side of the road. The lost coast was cool and foggy, but with colorful flowers along a rugged and beautiful coastline.

 These trees are huge... Avenue of the Giants. Just magnificent to drive through this area. Makes you feel so small and the smell and atmosphere around these trees makes you grounded I have heard. We enjoyed it.

 Camp night at Indian Wells campground. Reservation not possible, but came early and secured our lovely spot for 2 nights. Clear skies, so got up at midnight to enjoy the stars and see the Milky Way.

 Mt. Shasta. We drove all the way around it and even with the sweltering heat the snow was still there and we could not pass through Mt. Lassen national park because of the it. I love the long views and the yellow lines on the roads. It's road trip heaven in CA.

 We spent our last night in the central valley on the 4th of July. It was very hot and the locals where hanging out in the shade from from a bridge and swimming in the river. A mariachi band was playing and we enjoyed the scenery.
