what the hills y’all: driving the california coast
What the Hills Y’all: Adventures of a Texas girl living in San Francisco
Want to see nature on a good hair day? Driving down the California coast will make you second guess why you prefer the indoors versus outdoors. The coast is beautiful. I knew California was known for its scenic views, but this was on a whole other level.
Blue water for miles, towering mountains, luscious green trees, farmland lined with yellow and purple blooming flowers. It’s really mind-blowing.
Justin decided to take the long drive to Palm Springs for Coachella to show me the coast and I’m so glad he did. Road trips in Texas are nothing like this. The drive from Dallas to Houston is one of the most boring you’ll ever take with 4 hours of just highway and dirt. On this road trip I kept wanting to stop and take pictures, trying to soak in the beauty. If you are ever needing to take a road trip and aren’t in a rush, it’s definitely worth the long trip.
Although it took us a total of 14 hours to get to Palm Springs, it gave me a great excuse to use my new camera, have dinner with my sister, and enjoy some quality time with my boo.
