Day One of this year’s California Road Trip took me all the way to Ashland, a small town near the California border. When I arrived, I parked my car, checked into the hotel and headed straight for my favorite place in this city: Lithia Park. It’s a gorgeous 93 acre city park, right smack dab in the middle of town. Walking trails along Ashland Creek, a duck pond and lots of green space to sit and relax and so many different types of trees make this a popular hangout. The moment I sat down at the duck pond, I heard some faint sounds of music in the distance. My curious nature got the better of me so I followed the sound and discovered that Daniel, a local musician was playing his cello. I sat down, took a deep breath, relaxed … when suddenly I noticed that almost an hour had passed!
The ducks abandoned their pond and enjoyed the concert, along with many humans!

It was the perfect way to start my California Road Trip!
