Red Dale Trailer Trip – Part 1

June 2, 2015

Oh boy I miss this trip already! It was honestly one of the funnest things Rob and I have ever done. Something about the unexpected and the adventure just made us feel so alive. I remember learning how refreshing it was to let go a little and just wing it! Several nights we had no idea where we would get to sleep, and if we had enough gas to get there. For me, it was an important reminder about the stories I want to tell. I got to experience so much more and encounter many more incredible people by not planning every second of every day. I originally wanted a safe plan that I knew would be the best and the easiest…but turns out there isn’t much adventure or fun there. My favorite stories from the trip are the stories that were completely unplanned or involved a little risk. There was so much joy in letting go.

On to the trip! Here is part one! We left Colorado in a whirl wind and started our 27 hour drive. Turns out driving a 2000 pound trailer into head winds makes for a slow drive and 9.8 MPG. We drove through most of the night because there were winter storm warnings right behind us. We stopped at a few truck stops for naps, but eventually made it to Sonoma! We were very late and thought we would be locked out of the gate to our campsite, but we somehow made it! This campsite (Alexander Valley) is nestled in the valley where vineyards surround you! The site is nothing special, but the location is incredible.

We got to bike to several vineyards and try wine all day! Dream day, I know! Thanks to Stryker Sonoma and Soda Rock for treating us so well and the vineyard tours!

Also, if you are visiting this area, leave time to visit Healdsburg. The town is absolutely precious!

The following are a mix of phone photos and DSLR.

Enjoy 🙂
