The trip • Hall flew solo into Santa Rosa, California, rented a car, and spent the month of September driving this northwest coast.

Travel tip • “I wanted to tell single older folks that traveling doesn’t have to stop just because you are single, older or female. Traveling is its own reward, but traveling as a single senior offers one the opportunity to stop and see, go and stay, meet and greet as YOU want. I never feel afraid; I plan and am sensible.”
