Back to the Pacific Coast

207 days ago, on March 9 to be exact, we left San Clemente on the Orange County coast and headed inland to begin our exploration of the deserts and mountains of California.  Today we headed west from the Trinity Alps area and reached the coast near Eureka ("I have found it!") California.  We stopped for lunch at a summit just before we reached the coast and saw the fog rolling in over the coastal range.

We drove through some of the redwood parks and past some rugged coastline before arriving at the mouth of the Klamath River in Klamath, CA.  We will be here a week and plan to explore the many parks and beaches of the area before heading just a bit further south for another week.  All-in-all, we will be on the Redwood coast for about three weeks and we are both very excited about being back in these beautiful forests. Rain is forecast for most of this week, so the weather may not be ideal, but we are thrilled that there might be rain in this drought-ridden state so early in the rainy season.  Fingers crossed.  Our campground is right on the Klamath River and the setting is GORGEOUS.  I'm sure I will have some fun taking pictures here!  A few  from our first afternoon, all taken from our campground.
