Then a new baby came and Pop decided to go to California so he bought a seven-passenger Studebaker car. Baby Raymond had a bed swinging from the back seat roof of the car – he was only six weeks old and it took us many days to travel through the desert, no gas stations, restaurants, nothing but terrible heat going through the desert.
I was young but do remember seeing the Yosemite Valley – the petrified forest and really many places interest that right now I can’t think.
We went to Texas, I remember seeing the Alamo.
Oh yes – on to California we visited Yellowstone Park and underground caverns in Virginia. I remember it was pitch dark but the leader had a flash-light and would point formations out – made by nature. I was very young but I remember a head much like George Washington and formations looking much like strips of bacon and many more.
