South again on US 101, enjoying the scenery as we headed for California. As with all of our touring along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, we wove in and out of sunny skies and dense marine layer, national forest and rocky beaches, mountains and valleys, country and towns.
Something we’ve never seen before—cattle pasturing next to a housing development.
Fantastic view from the highest bridge in Oregon.
We were surprised to have a fruit inspection before entering California.
250 miles later we stopped at the Blue Lake Casino and Hotel (and gas station) seven miles east of Eureka CA for a bit of overnight dry camping.
Hotel entrance on right, casino and restaurant and bar on left.
This place looks very plain on the outside, but inside it looks like any other hotel or casino.
No hookups, but there is a dump station with potable water. Camping is free with a two-day limit. You must sign up for their “rewards club” card and register your site at the hotel desk.
Tomorrow, more scenic driving.
