My Trip to Northern California


A San Francisco sunset

Keith Bach

Before Covid-19 shut everything down, I visited San Francisco and Northern California with my family around New Year time.  Everything about San Francisco was amazing: the food, the sights, the sounds. My family, including my brother, sister, and mother joined a three day tour of Northern California. On the second day of the trip we stopped in San Francisco and stayed at a luxurious hotel. The views were amazing. We took a ferry to Alcatraz and enjoyed the calm waters of the bay. I’ve always been interested in Alcatraz related stories and the pictures we captured were very memorable. After a riveting day in San Francisco, we had to wake up at 5am early next morning to board the tour bus as scheduled. We slept soundly on the way to Yosemite National Park. I found a souvenir mood stone necklace at Yosemite. Looking back, this was one of my favorite vacations in recent memory.
