CA Road Trip

1 09 2011

One of my all-time favorite things is to drive up and down California. This time, I cruised up the 99 and on up I-5 to visit various friends and family members, then cut over through Oregon to the coast at Crescent City. On my way south, after some more visiting, I hugged the coastline, eschewing the 101 for Highway 1 and the Coastline Highway. Spectacular and other such adjectives don’t do this state justice.

I cherry-picked caches along the way, and my first discovery was this antique Caterpillar, displayed in the parking lot of a McDonald’s in Tulare!

Further up, near Red Bluff, I stopped and enjoyed this classic Golden State view.

The next big leg of my journey was through the redwoods in the northwest corner of the state.

The highway follows the very windy (as in curvy, not gusting) Eel River.

These aren’t cows, which I also saw along the roads. Check out the rack on that elk buck!
