|Riding on the edge of wine country|
Before long we were into some big trees. The Redwood forests are beautiful....pure and simple!
The 101 took us through seaside, hillside, meadow and big tree scenery. We were kept busy taking in the sights.
Gentle riding through easy curves made this ride most relaxing. The 101 is a real pleasure for motorcyclists. And we met many more motorcyclists; including a group of 12 from Germany and later in the day, a group of 6 from Copenhagen, Denmark. They all rode rented Harley Davidson motorcycles. We exchanged some fun chatter with them.
|The usual tourist pit stops|
We arrived in Eureka, CA, in mid-afternoon. We weren't tired and both agreed that Crescent City - further north - would be an ideal overnight spot. So we pushed off.....!
|Rolling through Eureka, CA.|
|Some curves but these were easily navigateable compared to some of the twists and turns from the previous day.|
|The seaside brought cooling temperatures and marine fog.|
|Only a few sharp curves along the route today.|
|Likely millions of photos are taken in front of this Redwood tree.|
|Marin fog rolled in....then out....then in.....|
|This restaurant was recommended by the young lady at the motel counter. It was all she said it would be. In our view....4+ stars!|
|Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City - First operated in 1856.|
They are heading for Portland, Oregon today while Jeanette and I head further north on the 101 for the Oregon coast.
Thanks for dropping by.
