Our jouney today is up the Coastal Highway (101). We take a slight detour north of Orik,CA to take the Scenic Highway through the National Redwood Forest. We are once again amazed at the size of these giants, especially their height. It is probably 10 degrees cooler in the redwood forest because so little sun gets to the forest floor. After the redwood forest the road goes right along the coast. We stopped in far northern California to take some pictures of the awesome view. This road is mostly two lanes with occaisional passing lanes. There was one big upgrade then a 7% downgrade but after that it was a little up then a little down and the views were wonderful. We arrived in Coos Bay around 4:00pm. This park is way off of the highway so no road noise. The pads are paved which makes leveling easier and the bathrooms are shiny. No grass and only small trees so it is not as pretty as the park in Fortuna. After running to the store and service station, we settled in for the night.
