vacation, part 2

A few weeks ago I posted some of our roadtrip photos with some tips for going on a camping roadtrip. I also promised to post the rest of our vacation photos soon. I’m finally getting around to it now.

…Better late than never?

So for those of you who love other people’s vacation photos, for those of you who read the last post and were like, “where the heck are the recommendations?” and for those of you who are Chris’s friends who got to this through Facebook (because for everything I post and tag him in, I get about 3 likes from his friends for every 1 of mine), here they are:

Recommendations

Everett and Jones BBQ – Oakland
The Waffle Roost (Food Truck) – Oakland and surrounds
Sam’s Anchor Cafe – Tiburon. I recommend the eggs benny, but not the waffles.
Powderface – Oakland. Don’t fall for it when someone asks you to smell the beignets. (I did.)
Yosemite National Park White Wolf Campground

Nevada

No recommendations.

We basically drove straight through Nevada, but there was a beautiful lake (and an awesome neon sign that I didn’t take a photo of) in Hawthorne.

Tonopah, Nevada was the place where I felt simultaneously the best and worst I’d ever felt about myself. I was waiting in line to pay at a grocery store, when the girl behind me explained that it was so busy that day because food stamps had just been given out.
