... Tahoe at Harrahs Casino for free and had a night at the casino playing roulette and some slots.
We then headed to Santa Cruz on the beach in California for a night. Went for a walk down the boardwalk which was just a big amusement park on the beach. Took a walk down the pier and had some good seafood for dinner.
Left Santa Cruz for the drive down to San Simeon. Awesome coastal drive where we saw, squirrels, deer, seals, about ...

wasn’t too bad; I just stayed close to the walls and going downhill is easy.

Hopefully my body cooperates with this awful ...
From Mesa Verde, Kate and I turned Tonka's nose westward, back into the deserts of Utah. We were heading for a small and rarely visited (comparatively) Park named Natural Bridges National Monument. Here, geological upheaval has allowed the tributaries of the Colorado River to carve tunnels through rock that is around 100 million years older than that at Arches NP. And for those who are ...
