Redding Lodge Pin


Today we headed up to Redding Elks Lodge. We crossed the Benicia Bridge, part of the San Francisco Bay Bridge system which are all toll bridges. It was $5 per axle, so motor home plus tow car = 5 axles = $25 to cross.

We made a couple rest stops, and had lunch at Black Bear Café. We started to see Mt Shasta and also Mt Lassen in the distance. Both impressive even at this distance.

The GPS took us into Redding Elks from south through old town Redding, a bit of a pain, we should have followed directions in book from the north. We set up and went in the lodge for a cool drink since it was a HOT day. Lots of friendly Elks in the lounge. We got the lodge pin which represents the area with the Sundial Bridge, the Sacramento River, the Eagle that nests in the trees behind the lodge, Mount Shasta and the Elks.
