Uprooted in Gold

It was that night by the gas station when I felt it. A liquid, a lightness, kind of like the golden air over my shoulder as I sat on the curb. For a moment it was stretched out soft, carrying me with it. The van was parked to my left and Nevada plains lay to my right. The future was spellbound. I was here, and the possibilities were endless.
 
I’d forgotten what it felt like to be a little kid.

Here are three of our favorite home-away-from-home hotels in central California and the weekend adventures we enjoyed there.
