Today was a long drive up towards Vancouver, we planned to drive most of California State, and find accomodation close to the border of CA & Oregon. But a little Jet lag set in, and we were up at about 5 this morning, deciding to finish up and get going. We travelled the interstate 5 the whole way - since that is most direct, and quickest way. The first part of CA was not very interesting, reminding us of the Karoo type driving, when you're on your way too Cape Town. Flat, semi-desert and boring. So not many photo's were taken. The road signs are quite different, and we came across a few interesting one's - so we took a few photo's of the road signs (especially since the scenery wasn't that great).

Closer up north, the landscape became more hilly, and prettier - especially once we started seeing the snow capped mountain of Mount Shasta. By that time we were already almost 10 hours on the road, but since it was only about 3:30 at that stage we decided to push on, and make this day a really long trip - while tomorrow will then be much easier. We pushed through to Roseburg in Oregon - 12 hours later we are sitting in a road side inn, exhausted, and glad that tomorrow's trip will be much easier, and shorter too Seattle.
