Oregon is like the cherry on top. Below on the map lies California with so many wonderful things to do but we have to admit that Oregon has a certain charm that is hard to find. Our wonderful friends in Santa Clarita invited us down and we couldn’t resist driving along the coast and enjoying the beautiful views, food and whether that California has to offer. Well, being a local business owner we know exactly how our friends who are running a mobile detailing company in Santa Clarita feel about doing the best job possible. Just like us they know that servicing customers with top-notch results is the only way to stay in business and sleep well at night.
So some of the wonderful things that we were able to experience include spending time along the wonderful California beaches. At the very top of California next to the Oregon border along the 101 Highway are some beautiful old growth redwood forests. Check out the Jeremiah Johnson park. There are many parks and recreation areas in which to enjoy this beautiful environment. These trees are stunning and incredible. We stood in awe at the diameter and height of these giants. It’s a humbling experience to say the least. These trees are so special in that their roots are all intertwined supporting themselves in the earth that they grow on and in. In fact, when the wind is blowing and you’re standing some feet away from the trees you can actually feel the Earth moving up and down as the root systems absorb all of the motion of the tree from the wind blowing it. Pretty incredible to experience this.
Taking a road trip like this when we own our own business is not the easiest thing to do generally. Most small business owners are extremely busy and are really one-armed paper-hanger. In other words, taking a road trip in their car is not something they have time to do on a regular basis. So when we arrived in Southern California and stopped at our friend’s place in Santa Clarita we had our car washed. In reality, we really had them do their mobile car detailing service on our messy and dirty car after traveling so far. There is really no comparison to how much better they do as a mobile detailing company when compared to driving your car through the local car wash. They take the time to get all of the little details, cracks and crevices cleaned out of our car. They take compressed air and blow out all the dust and debris from all the little cracks in all the fascia on the dashboard and center console and armrests. It is a greatly different result than the car wash at the gas station.
We all know that Southern California is definitely a car Lover’s Paradise. It really makes a lot of sense considering how often people spend a lot of time on the road in their cars. No doubt having a clean car makes your day a lot better when you’re spending a few hours in it. That is one of the sacrifices of living in Southern California is the long drive times and the bumpy roads. There’s so much to do and see in California and Santa Clarita has a lot to offer. Our friends took us to Magic Mountain where we rode some of the world’s best roller coasters. The weather in Valencia and the surrounding cities is superb. Our friends reside in Valencia and really enjoy the fine dining and restaurants.
Santa Clarita also has the performing arts college California School of the Arts. This makes for a lot of really good entertainment in the Valley from the students who go out and play and perform at nightly gigs. We have heard some superb Flamenco guitarists, some drummers with rhythm off of the charts and many other things including dance performances at costs that would not be possible anywhere else. In fact, some things are free and you are seeing some of the up-and-coming world-class talent.
Well, we love Oregon and especially Southern Oregon but our neighbor to the South, California hosts some of the world’s best in many different things. For us, if we ever decided to leave Oregon, California would be high on our list of places to call home. So, if you ever need a great car detailing service check out our friend’s mobile auto detailing company at SCV Mobile Detail.
