Some trips are not vacations.

I love traveling up and down the length of California. But there are times when you need to go somewhere in a hurry and the I-5 just seems to stretch forever.

But, then, there are those wildflowers in Gorman.

No matter how stressed you are and how long the journey is taking you, it's hard not to notice hills of yellow. And when the purple tops of the lupine are waving in the wind, it's hard not to smile, despite it all.
