Well we are back from our 1500 mile journey thru northern california and southern oregon. We drove, hiked, relaxed, slept in, exercised our bodies a lot and minds very little, enjoyed some of the most beautiful coastline in So. Oregon and NorCal, saw many unique landscapes from redwoods to rolling meadows, to volcanic rock formations to beaches with huge rock outcrops to many small towns. We hiked up Mt. Shasta to 11,000 feet from around 9000+, hiked up castle crags, hike down to Crater Lake in Oregon (WOW, that water is cold...54 degrees), hiked along the oregon coastline and the Lost Coast Beach in NorCal. We even did Kettlebells, kayaked, yoga, and a whole lotta sitting on the beach absorbing the sun and as you can tell a lot of driving.
What a magnificent journey and who would have known how much beauty exists in this west coast without a little trip down the road less taken.
