This morning we said our Goodbyes and Thank Yous to Patty. She is heading back South to San Francisco and we are heading North to Seaside Oregon.
It is very foggy as we leave Arcata CA and head North on The Pacific Coastal Highway US 101. This seems to be very typical as the winds blow ashore from the cool ocean onto the warmer land.
Between Orick & Klamath Oregon we noticed someone on the roadside taking photos so I slowed down to try and see what they were taking pictures of. Well there was a small herd of Elk resting behind a row of trees just off the highway. I thought that it was better that they were resting in that field rather than out wandering on the highway.
In Klamath we looked for and found the Paul Bunion Statue. Paul is 95 feet tall.
The fog was starting to dissipate as we were crossing over the border from California into Oregon. We get to add another State to our Visited States map.
US 101 along the Pacific Coast in Oregon is very similar to the Pacific Coast in California. It is all very scenic, but if we do this highway again, and I am sure we will, we will drive from North to South. All of the scenic pull offs are on the ocean side of the road. Most of our photos are shot through the car windshield because there are very few pull offs on the Northbound side.
We arrived in Seaside Oregon after a long day of driving. Tomorrow we will head for Federal Way Washington.
