I made it to San Francisco!
Ocean wind gets chilly if you stop moving for long. Swam in the Gualala river then camped with a bunch of other travelers near there last night.
The 101 wandered inland a bit. Today found split off for CA 1, back on the coast now. Stopped for an afternoon break at Mackerricher Park, never started again.
Spent much of the day in the Humbolt Redwoods. Melted a bit in the afternoon. Campground near Leggett in search of bike travelers to talk about routes, success.
Relatively flat ride today. Had many breaks, snacks. The dark snuck up on me today. Rode late to get past town. Avenue of the Giants tomorrow. So dark out here!
Plenty of long climbs today (and then dropping back to sea level). I’m into the redwoods now which are fantastic! Watched many elk. Stopped now near Big Lagoon.
Today was nice. Lots of pretty beaches. Met many other bike travelers on this route, leapfrogged a bit. About an hour into California, five months from home
Stormy day, didn’t get too far. Visited the Cape Blanco lighthouse, on the westernmost point of Oregon, where the wind was very strong. Now at Humbug Mountain.
Felt like a meandering day, but perhaps there was only a normal level of meander. I’ll try harder tomorrow. Found some good apples. Staying near Bandon tonight.
Left the valley for the coast, arrived in the evening. Climbed a sand dune, high as the tree tops, to look out on a field of them! Sand and water everywhere.
