It’s been a long time since I took a road trip up to Mendocino County.  A long dark rainy winter was followed by chemo and its aftereffects, making road trips a challenge.  I have every belief that better times lie ahead.

That said, I am lucky enough to be surrounded by people who love road tripping and I often hitch a ride.  A few weeks ago, I headed up to Mendocino County with a friend, exploring some of the little towns on CA State Route 128.

Labor Day 2011. Joshua decided to take a few hours off of work and came by to pick me up for a road trip. We deliberated over a couple of options and finally decided to go to Mendocino County and visit Boonville on CA State Route 128. After looking at the map we thought we’d drop in on the neighboring towns of Philo and Yorkville, as well.
