OK, OK, OK - time to power through another day-late travel post!
The Canyon at El Capitan, just north of Santa Barbara - very cool! I stumbled upon it after I stumbled upon Ciao Bambino, a resource for traveling with kids absolutely anywhere in the world. The Canyon was highly rated and so I said "Sign us up!"
We chose a two-bunk cabin, with extra room in a loft. Every detail was addressed for the luxury camper - two feather comforters on each bed, in-cabin heat and bathroom, even a local market to grab good meals to eat if needed.
And we needed.
Strolling through the canyon, there were so many picture perfect moments with all the mature trees (oaks and elms?), rustic modern cabins and various surprises like llamas, yurts, a swimming pool, playground and sports playing fields.
After dinner at the market, we grabbed a smores kit, went back to our cabin and waited for some fire wood to be delivered. Luxury camping - who knew?! ;)
