McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park, CA.

 The park is northeast of Redding, six miles north of Highway 299 on Highway 89 near Burney. The waterfall is within the McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park in Shasta County. There's also a campground with RV hook-ups, boating, rentals and places to hike. We took a 4 mile hike down to the falls and it is gorgeous. Bring your  hiking boots because once you get to the falls there are many rocks. Fun fact, the PCT Pacific Crest Trail runs through the park.

If your visiting Washington DC, we recommend seeing Arlington National Cemetery and the changing of the guards at the tomb of the unknown soldier. They also offer a guided tour bus around the cemetery with knowledgeable drivers. Out of respect we did not take any pictures there.

We visited Hearst Castle in San Simeon on our way to Morro Bay. There are so many tours to chose from and we decided on the Upstairs Suites Tour because it included Mr. Hearst private suite and what a surprise that was. He had a pair of  pink satin pajama's hanging in his closet! The whole castle is stunning and a must see & do.

We never had Bison meat before and wanted to try it. We ate at the Bear Pit Restaurant inside the Old Faithful Inn after touring the famous Crows nest. If you don't want to walk to the Old Faithful Geyser, on the top floor you can watch it from the outside deck.  Dean had the Bison Burger and I had the Bison Sausage wrapped in a pretzel bun. Both were soooo good! 

Dog Beach at Ocean Beach, San Diego CA
