Big Bear!

So we have made it over 250 miles!! Pretty amazing when I think about it.....kind of crazy we have walked that far. It has been great thus far. I am loving it. Though we are about to go into the really hot desert section so...But here are some photos from this last bit

Our very dirty clothes. We had to fill the tub like 4 times to get the water to not get to that dark brown color. Amazing how dirty things get in the desert

Photobucket
And I did not realize we had to watch out for....

Photobucket
Killer Trees!!!

We woke up one morning in the clouds. So we packed up and started walking and we got to this boulder field that was amazing! The clouds were rolling in and then they would start to retreat and then come in again....we sat and ate breakfast there. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip thus far as it was gorgeous!

Photobucket
It was amazing. The ground was just like one big rock with boulders on it. Absolutely gorgeous!

Photobucket
I also didn't realize I had to watch out for cheerleaders.....

Photobucket
And squirrels.....there are so many dangers out there I never thought about before we left :)

Photobucket
Outside of Idyllwild we ran into our first snow...but Raymond took care of that :)

Photobucket
It is a hard hard life we have out on the trail....

Photobucket
Raymond's backpack is a magnet for small birds...when we stop to take a break they flock

Photobucket
More snow in the San Jacinto Wilderness

Photobucket
The first night out of Idyllwild we camped on Fuller Ridge above the clouds. It was gorgeous!

Photobucket
Above the clouds. It was awesome

Photobucket
We are sooo dirty. And walking through Mesa wind farm

Photobucket
Whitewater canyon was gorgeous as well. Lots of water flowing with tadpoles in it.

Photobucket
Cooling off in Mission Creek (our hottest day we have had thus far. The water was sooo cold and felt sooo good)

Photobucket
There are a lot of burned areas with cool burned trees

Photobucket
Mission Creek Canyon was super hot....but had a ton of beautiful flowers. The walls of the canyon were covered with purple flowers. It was awesome

Photobucket
We got to Big Bear this morning and had a HUGE breakfast. It was so good.

We are in Big Bear now and it seems like we should be able to upload our audio tonight so it should be up shortly! And we are heading out tomorrow afternoon. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Krabi Town, Thailand - Day 2

Our second day in Krabi town was just a half day. We had until 2pm to hang out and explore before we headed off to Phuket. We got up early and went in search of breakfast hopeful that some of the places that were closed the night prior would be open - and luckily they were! Well a lot were still closed, but the best looking place was open so it was perfect. Raymond's plate of food   And mine - only $1.25! Such a steal and super delicious. We both had rice noodles and yakisoba and ham log, and Raymond got some greens and I tried a curry looking thing with lots of weird vegetables I had never had before. It was pretty tasty, but it was a fish curry with mock fish in it and well I have never been a seafood fan so probably not my best choice. I just went by what things looked like since I don't read Thai.  After lunch we went to explore Wat Kaew Korawaram up on the hill.  There was this abandoned park along the stairway up to the temple with wild animal statues
