Through the City and Over the Hills

We left Morgan Hill about 8:30 yesterday. We had a 420 mile drive and had decided if we got tired we would just stop for the night. I knew we wouldn’t, as Kevin likes to drive..

Tom, our GPS was routing us around San Francisco but we made the decision to ignore him and travel 101 straight through San Francisco.. We wanted to get a look and also wanted to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. So,  if Kevin was game, so was I!!  After all, he was the driver.. So into the city we went…

And then we got a glimpse of the Pacific…

Drive to Crescent City, Ca 149

We made it to Crescent City after a very long 9.5 hour travel day.  Driving the scenic route sure does take longer but worth it, in the end!!

Beautiful tour, thanks. We stopped briefly in San Fran but not with the RV. I can't imagine driving it thru the city!

I can't believe you went thru SF with the RV. We lived out there for 4 yrs, those streets are NARROW. Congrats for making it. What a gorgeous area. Have fun and see all you can.
