        October 6th, the Kaspers spilt off and headed direct to Napa so that LeeDelle could catch a plane to their home and attend a wedding shower. So we drove to Arcata to spend a couple of nights. It was nice to finally have clear skies and a warm temps as it was rainy for most of the last few days.

        On the 7th, we drove to Eureka and checked …

        ... areas. Although there have been occasional rain here and there, the fire danger remained high that 'no campfire' mandates were in effect region-wide.

        It rained my final two days at GNP and with the Arizona heat having thinned out my blood, I got cold rather easily. This was not my first rodeo so I brought along with me proper layering in anticipation of the cold and rain. However, it seemed no amount of layering was enough once I ...

        ... writing these two blogs with a very negative tone which I really shouldn’t as it hasn’t been awful or anything I guess it just hasn’t matched our expectations.
