Where I stayed
First up, the Trees of Mystery in Klamath which offered giant statues of and by Paul Bunyan, with Babe the blue ox guarding the entrance. A 1/2 mile walk through the redwoods followed by a Sky Rail over the tree canopy and then a return 1/2 mile through the various wood carvings. The kids loved it!
A very pretty drive followed but again, the Pacifc Ocean was mostly viewed through our foggy lenses, so we detoured slightly and did the original Drive Thru Tree at Leggett
Heading back to the coast after a journey inland (where the sun was shining) brought us back amongst the fog, but we continued on to Fort Bragg which we had read was a much cheaper option than Mendocino/Spendocino and found a great hotel called the Beachcomber. Dinner was a family run italian that wanted to close before we appeared at their door but they were kind enough not to send us away at 8pm without a bowl of pasta.
