"Who can't relate to the idea of leaving one chapter behind and moving on to the next?" - Mike Shinoda
The only picture I took of myself during the entire trip was just before I left the hotel. I kept it because I dig the lighting, but my front facing camera leaves much to be desired.
After this, I headed south toward San Jose, asking friends online for suggestions on where to stop. By the time I was told even one place, I made sure it was my next destination.
