Car Trips – With Kids

Grandpa Ron and I love to drive 395 along the Eastern Sierras when we travel back and forth between Reno and Los Angeles. Some people think we are really crazy (okay, so we are!) but it is so scenic! Austin loved it, too – BOTH directions! He pointed out all the trucks, motorcycles, boats (on trailers), and airplanes we encountered in either direction on the highway. Then we also pointed out big rocks, water, trees, horses, cows and elk. We wave at our favorite Joshua Tree outside of Mohave (See, we are crazy!) that we call Grandpa Tree. When we get into Reno or LA, we play the bridge game – Somebody (usually Austin) says, “Here comes a bridge!” and then we count slowly to three ( or say… ready, set…) as we approach it. Then as we go under it we all say, “Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!”

We’ve been traveling this route for more than eight years but never tire of it. The spring flowers are gorgeous in the desert after sufficient rainfall occurs! I’ve got lots of pictures to prove that!
