    Eureka to Fort Bragg - Windy road!

    October 25, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    On continue la descente ! Mais avant de quitter Eureka, nous prenons le temps de faire des provisions et surtout de la glace pour la glacière ! Le thermomètre a monté brusquement et garder nos légumes et hummus au frais requiert désormais cette précaution (... et en sus ça garde la bière à bonne température...). Nous continuons donc sur la route 101 vers le Sud. L'autoroute est belle et traverse toujours plus de forêts et vallées sous 25°C et un soleil radieux. Le climat devient progressivement plus sec aussi. C'est le moment de laisser la 101 derrière nous : nous bifurquons à l'entrée de la route californienne 1, qui suit la côte jusqu'à San Diego. Et elle commence par 60km de virages serrés à travers la montagne ! Nous atteignons la côte juste à temps pour nous installer en bord de route au soleil couchant. Nous pouvons même suivre un pélican et des loutres chasser la poiscaille sur la plage (inaccessible) en contrebas.

    We keep going down! But before leaving Eureka, we took the time to fill up our cooler with groceries and ice - the latter to ensure that our perishable food does not go gross under the warmer weather, and besides it also keeps the beer cold 😉. We keep driving down the 101 South, the freeway is gorgeous, crossing through miles of forest and cute valleys, under 25°C and a bright sun. The climate keeps getting drier and drier. Then it is time to leave the 101 behind us and turn West on the California 1 road which follows the coastline till San Diego. And it starts with 60 km of windy mountain roads! After this "wheel workout", we reach the coast just in time to catch the sunset and settle for the night on the side of the road. We were lucky to watch a pelican and a couple of others chasing fish by the (inaccessible) beach just down the cliff.

    Another Campground Reunion

    October 13, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We put in a long, hot day gradually climbing for 65 miles through Garberville to get to the Standish Hickey State Park campground, which had an awesome hiker/biker area. We rolled in around 5:30pm and were pleasantly surprised to find a bunch of our cycle touring friends also camped there. We also met Austin and Janie and admired Austin's Xtracycle bike. We went on a "beer run" after dark to the convenience store across the street and Austin demonstrated the passenger option of his bike with Daniel surfing on the back. The next morning we laughed as Neda "smoked" her bike shorts over her biolite to prepare for the day's ride, and said goodbye to Aaron who was heading inland to visit friends while the rest of us headed back to the coast on highway 1.Read more

    Leaving California... part2

    More pictures from the Redwoods...
    These trees were truly massive. We did not drive our car through the tree...we were in line to do it, but when cars in front of us were getting stuck because they were too tall or scraping the mirrors and doors because they were too wide, we decided against it.Read more
