In July 2009 (this year) I left my beloved California and moved to Pennsylvania. I wrote about leaving California in my blog post “Leaving My California” – https://amarez.com/2009/07/19/leaving-my-california/
I drove across country, from California to Pennsylvania, keeping people updated (mostly) via twitter. Thinking about what I wanted to see the most, I picked Sedona, Arizona and Santa Fe, New Mexico. So, south from Palo Alto on Highway I5, stopping off at Gorman, California, as I always stop there on my way to Santa Monica. Then, east through the desert to Sedona, Arizona, east again to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and northest to Pennsylvania. I’m not a long distance drive and I stopped for two days, twice. So, around 3000 miles, in 13 days. Here’s the journey. I’ll include my tweets — twitter posts.
July 20, 2009. I5 to Gorman, California. Very hot. Econo Lodge kept the chandelier from the former Caravanseri Motel!
Drove east through the Mojave Desert, on to Arizona, highway through the desert. Lots of space. It was very hot. The Mojave desert had a stark beauty. Continued on through the Arizona desert, which was beautiful.

July 22, 2009. Eating breakfast (huevos rancheros, yum) at a cute place down the street. The red rocks of Sedona are everywhere – dramatic, beautiful.
Next Blog Entry, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and east.
