Day 32, Saturday, May 7, 2011.
After baking for a couple of weeks in sunny climes, coastal fog and raindrops on the roof are welcome reminders of home:)
We pulled out of Fortuna this morning just before noon, drove through Eureka and went north along the coast to The Redwoods RV Resort just a few miles north of Crescent City, California.
On Day 31 (Friday, May 6th) we marveled at the virgin, old growth redwood forests in Humbodt County.
Today on Day 32 we experienced what it is like to stay in a campsite that was logged 75-100 years ago (my guess as to when). We pulled into a campsite with beautiful 70-80 foot high redwoods in all directions. But upon closer examination there are huge overgrown stumps everywhere…not at all unattractive…just a reminder of all the redwood giants that fell to provide lumber for building homes, towns and cities in this country in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Today we drove about 111 miles.
Total trip mileage is now 2,940.
So, Sunday will get us to Oregon. Our aim is to travel to and remain overnight in Gold Beach, Oregon right on the coast.
Thanks for stopping by,
