Day 8 Cross Country Adventures



Day 8
Friday, 5/13/2016

We left our camp site around 7:30am to enter into a northern Oregon coastal misty fog in the mid 50s with the moisture making it seem much colder. After driving in it for a few hours we both agreed we needed a hotel for this evening.

The coastal views off of the cliffs looking out to sea and the monstrous rock formations lifting up out of the waves of ocean water was yet a spectacular view as we rolled high and low from cliff to cliff of the coastal highway.

We stopped periodically to explore and take a few pictures.

When we pulled off to get our California state line pictures, we laughed as we ran across the busy highway to get a picture of us under the opposing Oregon sign, as we lost that photo opportunity when we entered Oregon in the middle of a bridge.

Oh yeah……..we went across the highest bridge in Oregon today and…..oh my yes, it was HIGH. Thomas Creek Bridge, 345 feet high.

The fog lifted for just a little while before we left Oregon and entered into California where the Red woods definitely marked its territory right away, like all of a sudden, boom….up they shot bigger and taller. And the smell also permeated the air.

We pulled into our hotel in the town of Crescent City, CA. around 4:30pm.
Gathered our laundry, happy that the hotel had a coin operated laundry room, threw our laundry in and mounted up to go eat us some dinner.

For those who have ask and had concern of my sprained knee. It is doing great. I am having no problems with it. I quit wearing the brace a few days ago. Still thankful for all the prayers to launch us on our great adventure.


I forgot to post my trip odometer last post so here it is and also today’s

Yeah, we are stopping to smell the ocean breezes and not as many miles down the road as when we were in pursuit of getting here.

Crazy thing, Al’s odometer is registering around 100 miles more ??????



This 1st picture is our pack up. And we’re are both as a team, high proformance on breakdown, pack up and get on the road.

The second picture is what we have always collected on our journey’s together; a deck of cards from every great tourism point of interest worth a deck of cards. Crater Lake made the cut.

Another slide presentation – remember give it a few seconds to load.
