Left the Redwood Forests yesterday. Crescent City is abpleasant little place only abfew miles from the Oregon border. Went into the Jedediah Smith National Park to drop Lesley off for a 10 km hike. The drive in was quite beautifulut also very eeire. The huge trees (some almost 100m tall!) are very close to the road, sometimes almost on the road! You could almost see some dinosaur popping his head out to say "G'day". While Lesley went off intonthe forest, the kids and I wandered about the beach. We've had a couple of big driving days, so it was good for the kids to run like Labradors on the sand.
Decided to do a big drive to Portland, Oregon. This will give us a couple of days to see the city, and then leave a shortish drive to Seattle prior to the cruise to Alaska.
