My friend was not sure how she felt about us not spending summer vacation together.
That had been our tradition since we were young.
But I had to work and warm extra money for my project before going back to school in the fall. Instead of going on the trip, I’d gotten a summer job. The family left in their RV a few days into summer. Their goal was to drive to San Francisco and spend time at the magnificent Yosemite National Park. We did some research about it before they left and learned it was set up in 1890. The Park had a reputation as being one of the most magnificent places in all of the country. That made me envious a bit because I’d have loved to see it. Yosemite was located in the Sierra West Mountain region and covered an area of 700000 acres. It was home to some of the only remaining giant redwood trees in the country. Not to mention it’s remained unspoiled in any way since the time of the European settlers in the area. We talked a lot on the phone when they arrived in San Francisco, and my friend sounded quite happy. She’d gone on a walk with her brother and saw him go into a weed dispensary. We were not of legal age to take marijuana, but that was only a matter of time. After they got some supplies in the city, the next stop was Yosemite National Park. It was heaven for someone who loved the great outdoors and wanted to see magnificent views. The area had lots of picturesque lakes and rivers topped with wildlife.
