Adventures in CA

This is California's tallest bridge and this is the sign next to the phone that basically says before you jump, pick up the phone below and talk to someone so they can hopefully talk you out of it. (I don't know how successful that tactic actually is but hey you never know what it will take to make someone change their mind when they are thinking of taking their life by jumping off a bridge.)
And this is the sign documenting CA's tallest bridge.
Okay, I know this is a little random but I have this really weird obsession with cemeteries. So on our drive through some canyon place in the Sierra's we passed this crazy cemetery and I begged for Jon and Brian to stop. On our way back we stopped but the sun was going down and we it was getting to the point where we couldn't see very well. But I found my camera to have a weird effect when we used the flash. I know you see the crosses light up but what you don't know is we couldn't see them. Needless to say it was a lot of fun and makes for good stories.

This place was crazy. I'm really glad I can add it to my list of cemeteries see around the world (okay around UT & CA).
Well, this is a picture of the cemetery before it got too dark. Okay, we might have been there for a while.
Brian, Jon, and yes Riley. Oh how those boys love that dog!!
He thinks he's so strong...well maybe he is a little bit.

These are our beautiful mountain here in CA. (But we can't really see them from where we live. Well actually we can't see them at all unless we drive like 45mins some direction on I-80.)

So I'm still new to the whole blogging thing and I'm finding that I'm not very good at keeping ours updated. So consider it a special day when I make the time to update our blog...

The Saturday's that Jon doesn't have to work or when he gets done early we've decided to do "Adventure Day". We don't know how long we'll be here in CA, so we're trying to see and do as much as possible. Unfortunately this has only happened one Saturday so far, but we're making the effort so there are bound to be more "Adventure Day's" in the future.
