Travel to Klamath, CA

We left Thousand Trails, Russian River Park, on Wednesday morning at 7:30 am heading north on Hwy-101. Out next destination was Klamath, Ca. which was 244 miles away. There was little traffic on this road all day. The scenery was amazing and we enjoyed the ride.

Along the way we saw beautiful hillsides, further north we saw huge redwood trees and then all of a sudden we were looking at the most beautiful sight of the Pacific Ocean in front of us. It was awsome, as neither Russ nor I had ever been up this way. We are really enjoying seeing this part of California. When we arrived at Klamath River RV Park, the temperature was 57 degrees and the wind was blowing. The sun was out but that wind was cold.

We waited for Jim and Nancy to arrive and then we took a ride up to Crescent City. We found a nice Seafood Restaurant and had dinner there. Jim had a calamari steak with clam chowder, Nancy had shrimp and chips with the chowder, Russ had a seafood combination plate (clams, fish and shrimp) and I had fish and chips. It was all very good. We then rode around the city and then headed back to the campground. We passed "Trees of Mystery" which Russ and I went back to today and enjoyed the museum very much. It was free and very interesting. We will go up and see the trees tomorrow if the weather is better. Today it was cloudy and drizzling most of the day and still cold. Again about 59 degrees all day.
