A trip to Cambria, CA

Last weekend, we drove down to Cambria, a lovely town on California's central coast, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. It's a very dog-friendly town, so of course Kargo went along. One of the attractions of the town is the meandering boardwalk above Moonstone Beach. It's a very popular strolling place for both humans and canines. Here's Kargo on the stroll.

We stayed at the dog-friendly Cambria Shores Inn.

The beach at sunset is a photographer's dream come true.

The other great hiking destination is the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. It has great ocean views and fabulous benches scattered throughout the trails.

Trip to Truckee CA

We traveled to Truckee, CA, recently and took Kargo along. We rode the gondola up the mountain at Northstar to do a little hiking. Here's Kargo in the gondola car. She wasn't too happy about getting into it but we managed to urge her in. She was much happier to disembark.

While hiking, we stumbled upon this geocaching box.

The next day, we took a hike along Donner Lake in Donner Memorial State Park.

This is the arch that stands at the entrance to the Truckee community memorial garden.

During the two days in Truckee, Kargo met tons of people and tons of dogs. We believe she had a grand old time.
