Lunch at Taco Tree, a walk across the tallest bridge in California and then ice cream at Fosters Freeze. The bridge is amazing and the views are spectacular. What a great day!

I enjoyed visiting Forest Hill. Small town feel. They have a great funky gift shop with a super friendly owner. I had lunch at the little cafe that was good.

This is the highest bridge in California and also a place where several movies were shot. You can see both ways over the Canyon and for miles. There is a small place to park so you can walk out over the bridge and take photos.
