Crater Lake Trip
7/5 - 7/7, 2013
Charlie's family went to Reno for baseball game during July 4th. holidays,
we did not have July 4th. BBQ this year. Instead, we went Crater Lake with
Johnny from L.A. and had wonderful 3 days.
We left home at 9:00AM and drove Pacific Coast
Highway-1 arriving Bodega Bay by noon where we had lunch at Bodega Bay Golf
Course. Highway-1 of this section is especially winding road and you can not
drive any faster than 25-30 mph for most of the section. Johnny said it is
fun drive but Jane was scared as one side is steep cliff to ocean.

Bodega Bay, Highway-1 runs less winding but still winding along the Pacific
However, it presents beautiful coast line scenery all the way.
we arrive Eureka, there are two "Drive Thru Trees" (Tunnel Trees),
the first one at Legett where Highway-1 meets Highway 101 and another at
Myers Flat. When we visited Legett Drive Thru Tree, we were told we have to
wait 1 hour as there are too many visitors. We gave up there and drove north
to the "Shrine Drive-Thru Tree".
this Tunnel Tree, we drove to north Eureka and stayed first night there.
