"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Travel Day

We pulled out of Fort Bragg, CA this morning around 9am.  While walking Sally before we departed the campground, I homed in on a few of the amenities we had while there, and also the beautiful grounds.  The California State Parks charged $35.00 per night for a campsite without water, electric, or dump station, just a place to park on dirt with a fire ring and maybe a table.  For $38.00 a night we stayed in what may well be the nicest rv park we have ever visited.  The grounds were beautiful.  The sites were large and private and the showers and bathrooms were ceramic, marble, and stainless steel.  Quite a place, 1/4 mile from the Pacific.  Here are some of the flowers blooming this morning.

We traveled through some of the redwoods today, but didn't get many pictures.  Plan to do better tomorrow.  They are so huge and tall that very little light gets through them, and it really confuses the automatic cameras.  It is hard to get good pictures that show the scale of how big they are.

When you see ferns that are almost as tall as Wanda, you know the trees are huge.

We made our way to Klamath, CA this afternoon, and while looking through the Passport America directory, found the place we are staying.  It's actually in the Redwoods National Park and is quite a place.  One of those gems you stumble upon, occasionally.  First, its in the woods, and it's not nearly as nice as the place we just left.

But, on Saturday nights they do a salmon roast with all the trimmings, along with live music.  The salad was almost too pretty to eat. There was quite a crowd to enjoy the food, music, and fellowship. Marshmallows for the kids, and we may be on the worldwide web for all to see in a few days.

My plate show how good the meal was.  And that's after going back for seconds. The salmon was swimming in the Klamath river yesterday and was some of the best I've ever tasted.  Sure glad we happened upon Kamp Klamath.  Hopefully we'll see more of the park tomorrow.

Almost forgot about the Jayco chicken coop.  These chickens get around, apparently!!!!!
