Driving up was needlessly complicated. The normal boring PHX-LA trip didn't see much action. We stopped in Valencia for lunch. Then stopped outside of Bakersfield at the Murray Farms for (pictured) Rainier Cherries & boysenberries. We finally stopped in some farm town a few hours south of San Francisco.
The entire place smelled of fertilizer & there were bugs everywhere. The motel was nice and it was surrounded by food options but ultimately the town was uninteresting.
Day 1 went off without much complaint.
