6,000 some miles, four months, and many memories later we are back in Palm Springs. Towing through LA wasn’t too much fun but once we got outside of the city the freeway opened up and perfect 80 degree weather greeted us back to the desert. The condo feels huge and it’s strange to have unlimited […]
We spent two nights in Mendocino and then headed down the very curvy Highway 1 to Sonoma Coast State Park outside of Bodega Bay. I really don’t mind the curves as we take it slow and enjoy the spectacular scenery. The next day was not as much fun as we had to navigate the maze […]
The magnificent beauty of the redwoods cannot compare with cheesy roadside photo ops. I’m hoping Jaime won’t make us stop at that Dinosaur on I-10 before we get back to Palm Springs next week. We are currently in Mendocino and will continue down the coast for the remainder of the trip. Great weather. Sunny and […]
We’ve had great weather driving down the coast. A little windy yesterday but today was perfect. Staying two nights in Brookings and then back to California. We’re not looking forward to increased sales taxes and park fees.
We considered taking the ferry over to Victoria, B.C. but opted to do a whale watching tour and stop over at Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands instead. We hopped on the Puget Sound Express boat Olympic. The weather was changing from sunny to cloudy but the views on the water of Mt. Baker […]
We stayed two days in Port Townsend, a very quaint Victorian town on the Puget Sound. Our campsite was located in Fort Worden where they filmed “Officer and a Gentlemen” back in the 80’s. “I don’t see any horns on you boy.”
We had a nice hike around Silver Creek Falls State Park yesterday. I think I’ve camped here with my parents a long time ago. Looks like a great place to stay. Oregon parks are top notch. Lucy is going to stay with Jaime’s parents as we head up North to Olympic National Park. She is […]
From Whitefish, Montana we drove down to North Fork, Idaho and spent three days at the Wagonhammer RV Park on the Salmon River. A very nice spot but we had to meet friends in Boise in a week so we continued on down to the Sawtooth Mountains for a few days on Redfish Lake.
I think we found our favorite National Park and campground of the trip. Two Medicine is a remote area of Glacier know to the Crow Indians as the “Backbone of the World”. We had a great private site that backed up to a 9,000 foot mountain and high meadow that was wildlife central. We saw […]
