LA to Elk Grove,…

November 28

LA to Elk Grove, outside Sacramento.

It’s the Sunday of the busiest travel weekend of the year. There are wind advisories and dust storms through the entire San Joaquin Valley. It took 8 hours to do a 5 hour trip. But I didn’t care. No problem. I’m Retired!

Elk Grove is a suburb of Sacramento and an excellent study of why we need to appreciate and protect our parkland. What I saw of Elk Grove was a miles square complex of low slung faux mission chain store upon chain store complex of shopping malls and parking lots. I contributed. I stood in line for 20 minutes to buy food from Panda Express.
