Some spend their Mother’s Day going by spa; I spent mine going by jeep.

I hope you all had a fantastic Mother’s Day weekend! For me, it was one wonderful birthday celebration sliding into a most memorable weekend getaway, checking out a place that’s been on my to-do list for some time.

Safari West is a 400-acre wildlife preserve and African-style tent camp located just outside of Santa Rosa, California. It’s just over one hour’s drive north of San Francisco on Highway 101, and a fabulous stop to add to your family’s Northern California Road trip. I’ll have more photos of what you’ll find and all the details to help plan your visit–or overnight stay!–soon. And yes, we did get a turn to ride on the top of the jeep–right through the ostriches and cape buffalo, so it was a turn well-timed indeed. 😉

It’s been a busy week here! But so many great things are underway, including a gear giveaway I’ll be kicking off next week, sponsored by one of my favorite brands! If haven’t subscribed for email updates yet, please do so you won’t miss the announcement–or your chance for an extra entry.
