Ian found a very nice hotel within walking distance from his apartment which is very close to the financial district and the Bay Bridge. Sunday we took a cable car to Fisherman's Wharf and Ian showed us the city highlights. He is an excellent host and it was so nice to have a local viewpoint. We took a cab back to the hotel, a first for this country mouse.
We have had a great time with all of our hosts, and have enjoyed the insider views of the Dallas area, Las Vegas and SF. Looking toward to Glacier NP next weekend and hope our good luck with weather continues.
Speaking of Vegas, I think I skipped that update. First it was hot! Over 100, I think. Karen took us to the museum where Tom works and we got a look behind the scenes too. It had so many interesting exhibits about Nevada's history, from fossils to showgirls' elaborate headdresses.
Leaving SF Monday, we got back on 101 and headed north, getting back to the coast at Eureka. Today we're going to Redwood NP and should start heading easterly soon. We've passed the halfway point in our excellent adventure!
