Departure strategy has been amended from the original plan to walk east from San Francisco. I will instead be taking the train to San Luis Obispo and starting out from there. This eliminates the question about which mountain passes are open, and a potential long detour in the event of a last minute spring storm. I can walk from Avila Beach back to SLO on my first day, thus starting from the coast. The first large town on the route will be Bakersfield, and I'll angle up to U.S. Rt. 6 from there... Next blog post may be from 'the road'!!
Ai Weiwei '@ Large' at Alcatraz! This exhibit is SO worth the trip - very powerful! (I got to see it with an out-of-town guest who wanted to go to Alcatraz. It's going on until April 26th, I think.)
