On the Road with Betty White

We acquired our new VW "Betty White" in March after retiring "Roy" in the fall and decided the best way to get to know our new camper van was with a road trip. (Really we were just looking for an excuse to go road tripping.) Dave poured over his extensive map collection and put together a kick ass itinerary that included stops in Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada.

And while we're calling it a road trip, it was really more like an adventure trip because we spent as much time on the trails as we did on the road. Here's a photo summary of our trip...

Made it to the Lake Waldo campsite (west of Bend, OR) only to find it closed. Oh well, guess we have the place to ourselves.

Running part of the Waldo 100km course - definitely on my race wish list for 2014.

Great views from our Mt. Ashland campground.

Did an out-and-back on the Western States 100mi course. Another race I'm hoping to do next year.
Posing by a giant sequoia tree in the beautiful (but very dog-unfriendly) Yosemite National Park.

I have so many photos of Dora trotting happily along behind Dave. This one was taken near Mammoth Lakes.
Heading out on the PCT/John Muir/High trail near Mammoth Lakes, CA. Great altitude training for TransRockies!

A random scenic shot.

 At the top of Piute Pass near Bishop, CA. Check out the weird cloud formation over our heads.

The next day, I ran a section of the Tahoe Rim Trail...

...while Dave biked it.
And then in Sisters, OR, I biked and Dave ran.

Our final outing was on the McKenzie River trail west of Sisters. The old growth forest was amazing!

Finally, it was time to head home.

I'll post more photos of the trip on Facebook. You probably have to be my friend to see them, but if you're reading my blog, then you probably already are!
