Our Trip: Through California

We arrived in Merced in the very early morning hours.  We took a taxi to our hotel for the night.  We had planned on spending the next day at Yosemite National Park, but were informed at the train station that it was an extra cost for that bus…besides that, from the time we would get over there, to the time that we would have to catch the bus to come back to Merced to catch our train that night would give us VERY little time at the park.  So, we decided that it would be best to not go to Yosemite, and just spend the day doing very little in Merced.  We walked around the town, ate at a Mexican restaurant there, re-fueled our grocery bag, and let the children play on a playground there.  We were able to leave our bags at the Amtrak station, which helped us to just walk around the town without any hindrances.  Merced was a nice, small town…the people were friendly…but we didn’t really do much.

From Merced, we traveled back to Los Angeles, to catch the train to go back east. 
Traveling through California gives you many different kinds of scenery.  Here are a few pictures of the California countryside.
