      ... at night because we were able to sail through with no traffic. It would have been a different situation entirely had we crossed in the day. Lesson learned. I will return to San Francisco one day by air, and trolley through the city. Who's game??????

      South of San Francisco we hit Santa Cruz and then said goodbye to the Pacific coast and cut inland heading toward Napa Valley. The terrain changed almost instantly as we climbed up and away ...

      We were told that there was a lake up there, but it turned out to be a small pond. We met a nice guy that gave us some advice on where to go and how to get there on our journey for the next few days.
