When you hear “Hoover Dam,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Mine is that scene in the movie San Andreas where it collapsed due to a massive earthquake. You probably don’t know this about me, but I’m terribly afraid of sink holes. Any news about tremors and what they may have caused freak me out. I mean, how can one ever be prepared for something like that?
Since I started working in March last year, Roan and I have been on the lookout for any form of time-off from work. Long weekends are our favorite; they call for traveling, whether by plane or by land, and we take advantage of every opportunity we get. Being the road trip junkies that we are, Roan and I agreed to drive all the way to Nevada for Labor Day weekend last year.
I’ve been living in San Diego for a year and half now, but I haven’t really explored much of San Diego as a local. I mean, my last San Diego-related post was from Christmas last year. Yikes. In an attempt to rectify this, Roan and I got ourselves annual memberships at the San Diego Zoo. We thought we got a really good deal with our membership since it includes unlimited entry to the Safari Park in Escondido, too.
This is the last installment for this travel series. For the sake of new readers and those who failed to follow along, it has been six (6) months since we traveled to Seattle/Spokane, Washington. If you wish to catch up on our Washington trip, scroll down to the bottom of this page or click on the previous link. Thank you for being patient with me!
I don’t think I mentioned in my previous post that we opted not to return to the Space Needle as initially planned, although it’s right next to the Pacific Science Center. We figured that our trip there the night before had been satisfactory, so we opted to drive 5 miles further north to the Woodland Park Zoo, our final stop for this trip before we head back to Spokane.
