Our route from Fremont, CA (A) to Portland, OR. (F).Our first stop was Willits, CA (B)the next evening was in Crescent City, CA (C). Next was Florence, OR (D) and the final stop before reaching our designation was Seaside, OR (E). After Seaside we turned to the southeast to reach Portland.

















Richmond San Rafael Bridge

We took Hwy 101 most of the way north. We picked up 101 after crossing the Richmond San Rafael Bridge into Marin County. The mountain peak in the background in Mount Tam.









Here we are entering Willits, the Gateway to the Redwoods.












Sleepy Hollow

We spent the night at Sleepy Hollow RV Park. It was a small but very pleasant Park.















Here we are parked among the trees. It was next to Hwy 101, but fairly quiet.











We were soon driving through the Redwoods on our way the Crescent City.











We drove by the Benbow Inn, where we have spent the past 2 Thanksgiving. We already have reservations there for this Thanksgiving with Paul and Bev Heijn.








Hwy 101 in northern California goes right through the coastal cities. Here is downtown Eureka, it does not appear to have changed in the last 20 years when Mark used to fly here for Bank of America.














Mark and Ace

There were many RVs on the road as we traveled north ...

Oregon Coast

Driving north on the Oregon coast is very beautiful ...











including many older bridges.












To make the departure easier in Florence, OR we left the BBT (Big Black Truck) attached to the Airstream.







Our next stop ... Circle Creek RV Park & Campground in Seaside, OR.











Ace really enjoyed rolling around in the grass at the RV park in Seaside.












RainAfter leaving Seaside we headed to the southeast toward Portland. Believe it or not it rained along our route!
