Traveling day — Central Oregon to coastal northern California


Battery_Point_Lighthouse-JulianneGCraneTraveling today between arid Bend, Ore., and coastal Crescent City, Calif., (about 80 miles north of Eureka) where there are such interesting local attractions as the Battery Point Lighthouse … however my primary reason for this destination is to do day hikes into one or two of the Redwood National and State Parks.

A friend recommended I check out Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, it is open year round.

Because weather in northern California often turns on a dime this time of the year … I always like to check

As I write this, it looks clear for today, but there is a chance of showers on Tuesday. Glad I brought the Gore-Tex jacket.
