After some long discussions and a few beers (which may have affected the outcome) we decided to have a short riding day today and start enjoying the fruits of our labor, which has put us ahead of schedule, and enjoy what California has to offer. So we only put on 30 miles today and decided to hang out in Crescent City.
Unfortunately as we moved closer to the coast we found or first cloudy skies. I actually had mist on my glasses. What a bummer (ref: wuss comment above).
The milestones just keep rolling by. Today was the first time we saw a San Francisco sign so we had to capture the moment. I defaulted to the hold out pic because we feared for our lives on the nonexistent shoulder on HWY 199 and had no time to spare setting up my favorite self timer app (or removing our helmets Cheryl).
We also entered the beginning of the magnificent Redwood forest. We have a long way to go and have not even gotten to the Redwood National Park but I already have tree envy and am in awe.
As for tomorrow, we are still deciding (will likely take a few more beers). We are thinking about going only another 30 miles and spending the day and night in the Redwood National Park. As usual, we always reserve the right to change based on the motor home, our legs or if we see a good pub along the road.
