From the Road & More

We traveled 1,802 miles over a period of almost seven weeks (it turns out that we were only one day short of seven). During this period, we had thirteen stopovers.

Bonus stop. One more night on the road before returning to Bend. We swung a tad out of our way so we could check out the area & lakes along Hwy 31 on the way home.

Top Pic: Entrance to Golden Dome cave. Some of the caves (lava tubes) have steps at the entrance, but most don't.

This place has been on our bucket list for some time & we’re glad that we finally arrived. I think I see some lava tube/cave exploring on the horizon.

When ”plan A” didn’t work out, we moved on to ”plan B.” Needless to say, that didn’t play out either. Down the road, we found a great dispersed site at Rocky Point West - BLM on Eagle Lake. ”Plan C” rules!

Alabama Hills has been on our Bucket List for some time. We scored a scenic (but perhaps not that level) site just off Movie Road. Over 400 movies have been filmed in this area.

We found a great campsite in Water Canyon BLM. The campsites are scattered along the road & creek. We took the first site. Looking up the canyon, only one other RV is insight.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! We traded in our full-time traveling for a new home base in Bend, Oregon. We now spend less time on the road, but have managed to fire up the coach for a couple of trips. - Rob't & Diana

"A quick drive up the coast brought us to this campground we last visited during fall of 2013. It looks like this will a good base for exploring the area before heading home."

"Only an 88-mile drive, but it seemed much longer because of the narrow winding roads. But the reward at the end made it well worth it. Now it's time to explore the area."
