In rainy December, it’s always nice to get the heck out of Puddle Town. Los Angeles is usually quite nice this time of year, but this year they got more rain than they know what to do with (as illustrated by this giant mud puddle on Mulholland Drive).
We did Disney (in a fever, on one of the busiest days ever)…
But also the way cool (and way less insane) Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits.
We enjoyed the local fauna, too, and also a nice, intimate New Year’s Eve party, thanks to our extremely gracious hosts.
And of course, the drive is part of the vacation. We have a special place we like to stop at for dinner in Sacramento, and we love the Mt. Shasta area.
Many thanks to M & S for hosting us, and happy tree rat hunting to them!
