... park. The next morning we revisited the Visitor's Centre, to ask if they had any alternatives, and got pointed towards the Albee Creek Campground in the western part of the Park. We packed the tent and made the short commute through the eternal twilight that is typical of the forest floor beneath the redwoods. This ground was more like it; quiet, peaceful and even including the occasional deer...until that night. This time our ...

We did have an opportunity to test Greg's K1100's gas mileage figures as we planned to fill up as soon as we left Crater Lake, only to find that there were no gas stations open on the road we were on (US 62).
