Blue Lake, California

Mary is traveling with her 14-year-old grandson on a trip to Turkey. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

Yesterday I drove the 138 miles from Redding to Blue Lake, California. The entire drive was on California Highway 299, a road I had not driven before. I crossed the Klamath Mountains with lots of up and down, curvy and winding roads. I also passed through the Shasta-Trinity and Six Rivers National Forests. Several summits, the highest being 3,213 feet. The trip took four hours and passed through a number of small mountain villages. I parked overnight at the Blue Lake Casino. A nice and quiet night’s sleep.

Here are some of the photos I took yesterday…

After three days in the mid-90’s, Yesterday I drove west to a point only about six miles from the Pacific Ocean. The effect was wonderful! It was a partly cloudy/sunny day with a high temperature of 65 degrees. Today’s forecast is partly cloudy and 60 degrees. A bit cool, but delightful compared to the mid-90’s!

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
