#goodoldfriend

Despite the tilte, this post is not at all related to native american people. It’s all about Yosemite National Park. Let’s begin with a Gebirgsbach. America is really trying hard to have everything handicapped accessible, as a result you can do hikes with your wheelchair. Also, it get’s real crowded! You may think this is not crowded, and indeed you’re right, I’m gona show you what a crowded hike looksl ike. Anyway, this is about where we were heading On our hike we found some gold, we left it for the homeless people so they could by themselves new houses and stuff. No idea what kind of stone/rock this is…

#gebirgsbach

We left at Kings Canyon, on our way back out of there I took this picture. Next Stop: Yosemite. We went there without any preparations and when we arrived we’ve been told it’s famous for waterfalls, but they’re more impressive during spring than during fall as of the melting water. Not too unimpressive anyway. I So this was the first waterfall to be seen by us in Yosemite, and there’s more to come, a lot more to come. Contrary to the image I had of California before this trip there’s a lot of green and also water in California. This River or call it a creek has to be impressive…

So here’s where we left last time, at a burned grassland with some partial burned trees And here’s where we were heading at this point, towards yellow grasslands. By the time the view changed a lot, so this is how it looked after a while on the road, we’re getting near to Kings Canyon! We weren’t there yet but we got an idea where we were heading to the view on horizon was changing from hot yellow to cliffy rocks. When we took a closer look we were able to see that those mountains are different, every single one of them looked different. In the next few pictures I’d like…

So… where did we stop? Exactly we were on the Road With all those other cars in Sequoia national park, there was some roadwork which led to motorcades in the national park, I had to take a picture, to give you a feeling how f****** big this national park is. #big?So to give you a feeling of Sequoia it is 1634 in square kilometers, compared, Vorarlberg has 2600 square Kilometers, so if you added Wien 414 square Kilometers and another 5 times Graz 127 you’ll have Sequoia. Here’s more of what this all is about. I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles… Sequoia is by the way not…

#SequoiaNationalPark

so… it’s been a while, again… So let’s start off where we left… on the road to Sequoia National Park. Let’s start with a easy one so right before you enter Sequoia National Park there’s a River with one of the oldest bridges America has seen it crosses the Kaweah River and it was built in 1922. And right at the River there’s a restaurant where we had some breakfast and a nice view at the ducks living there, so called „wildlife“. So we entered this national park and we were impressed right away! Because what we were going to see was nowhere what I expected of California to be!…

#gunrangecar

So I was exploring California with my girlfriend for about 3 weeks, to be honest we did not spend all 3 weeks on the road, you know, jetlag and stuff, also there’s a lot to show in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Venice and so on… So in this and other related blog posts you will read about traveling California: Los Angeles, Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park, San Francisco and of course the Pacific Coast Highway. One of our first trips brought us to the Bendix Building and the Mexican Market in Los Angeles. This picture describes perfectly what I hear a lot when answering the…

#Devils #Punchbowl

#devil's punch bowl

You Remember my last post? When I was driving to the Desert? On my way back home I was like: I haven’t seen to much yet, almost desert only so I stopped at @Devils Punch Bowl. What I recognized first was: You have a marvelous view on the moon there 🙂 There was no lunar eclipse and from what I know you do not need to wear any special glasses to take a look at the moon, while the president doesn’t need some at all even if it’s a eclipse of the sun… I liked that little guide, he was showing me around the trail, very kind, and as you saw…

#bbq

First starting with some pictures from adelante trip, that didn’t make it to last weeks post, don’t know why. This looks to me like a buidling that collapsed, but to be honest I did not further investigate it and I have no idea what it is. Near the building I found a fridge, it was empty, at least from what I could see… but clearly when you have a BBQ in the desert you need to cool your beer and stuff right? While above is clear, someone had a barbeque and maybe shot the grill once it was finished, why the two tires are with the grill, that might be…

#Desert #Adelanto

#gotsomenewtires

A few weeks ago I went to Adelanto, there’s the Southern California Logistics Airport a friend of mine who was doing #thespeedproject this year ran past that on his way to Las Vegas, there are several thousand cars parked, new cars. I was curious to see that so I got a car and got there. Unfortunately you cannot get a good view on the cars as the fence is covering them… But I found something else… And this was not the only set of couches in that desert, there were others! Dimitri explained me that most probably people were out there to have a party from the picture I can see…

#SantaMonica #Beach #People #Birds

#SeaGull

I’m starting to get a little bit bored… It feels like I’ve seen almost everything I could reach by bike or Skateboard. I should go on a road trip soon, meanwhile I’ve some pictures of Santa Monica for you. That time I were at the beach and there was bread all around, while doves and seagulls have had fights on who’s bread it is there was none left for the homeless. I could not explain to myself how so many bread comes to lie arround at the beach, of course americans do not produce good bread at all, but it’s not that bad, so hou don’t have to feed it…
