I stayed in Eureka Sat night. My hotel is west of Hwy 101, beside an area called "Old Town" (reminding me of the movie Sin City). Old Town is full of huge Victorian mansions. I took a pic of one last night, on my way home from a meeting, but it may be too dark to see. I will go over and take a few more pics before I leave today.
Today I'm going east to Redding, then south to Red Bluff, then east again over the Cascades. Maybe as far as Lake Tahoe, maybe not. I'm having the best time :)
