    ... north 15 miles or so to pick up Hwy 96, which is a road with which I’m familiar from past experience. It runs for 155 miles, first along the Klamath river and then along the Trinity river. Simply put, it is one of the premier riding roads in Northern California. As we started it, the skies were surprisingly overcast and we even found a few wet patches of pavement.

    ... incredible in both height and width. Stopping was inevitable, photographs were required along the way.

So, I missed it. Dolly was a bit irritated, but you can't win them ...

    ... the Redwood National Park, we stayed next to a meadow, a meadow with Roosevelt Elk grazing! It is so cool to see these majestic animals grazing right off of the road, without any concern for the dozens of tourists snapping pictures. The meadow is surrounded by giant redwoods, so we didn’t miss out on anything. After a nice campfire visit with our neighboring campers from Germany, we called it a night.
