Today’s topic is: 5 Best Places I’ve Visited
This one is honestly tough because I haven’t really BEEN places. I’m really not a huge fan of travel and have only been out of the country once — to Tijuana, Mexico, which barely counts since I’m from California. So get ready, my “best places” are all going to be domestic and likely close to where I’ve lived.
The first place that popped into my head was a weekend I spent in Calistoga, CA. We stayed at a little B&B/Spa there and spent one day traveling through Napa wine tasting. I remember having “lunch” of a chunk of cheese, some San Francisco sourdough bread and a bottle of the best chardonnay. The next day was getting spa treatments: a facial, a massage, a salt scrub and mud bath. One of my best vacations ever.
The Grand Canyon… My husband and I were on what I now call “5 states in 5 days” trip, so we didn’t spend a lot of time here, but we did drive through. What a magnificent place. This was well before camera phones, so I didn’t take any pictures, so I need to go back at some point to get a few!
Virtually anywhere in the wilds of Colorado. I lived in Colorado Springs for five years, and my husband and I used to do a ton of off-roading. The areas in the mountains of Colorado are just stunningly beautiful. If you ever have a chance to go out there, go hiking, go camping, I highly recommend it.
The Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire. This is the busiest place in the country in early October, I can pretty much guarantee it. It’s where to go for premium leaf-peeping and it’s the best place for a reason. Just be prepared if you have issues with heights…
Dog Mountain in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. There are miles of trails here that are open for off leash hiking with your dog. Plus a pond they can swim in (the water my pup is in below is NOT the pond…just a stream she decided to lie down in) and they’re even welcome inside the gift shop. If you’re a doggy person like me, this is a great place to go!
I’ll leave you with a few pix from there, since it WAS post cell phone and I have some 🙂
