Actually this was our second trip out this year.
We decided to take the Ambassador up the Northern CA coast by way of Weaverille, CA to visit family. We stayed at a nice little place called Bigfoot RV in Junction City,CA.
After the owner saw the Ambassador he was quick to show me a sticker on his store window. His campground had hosted a vintage rally in the past.
After our visit we wanted to head to the coast for cooler weather. Of course we had to stop by McKinleyville, CA to see the World’s Largest Totem Pole as found on RoadSideAmerica.com. The totem pole is over 500 years old and made of redwood. According to the site, someone else build a taller one so they had to add a pole to regain the World’s Largest title.
From there we headed to the Trees of Mystery. Unfortunately with the parking situation, I could not get a shot of the trailer with Paul Bunyan :-(.
After finding a local campground we headed to Ocean World the next day to pet some sharks ;-).
Next we headed up the coast into Oregon. We landed a a decent KOA there and headed for the West Coast Walk Through Safari. Its a pretty neat place where you walk among the dear, goats, lamas, etc… as you walk around the park. The kids loved it.
Of course we had to stop by the beach during our coastal stay.
On our drive back down the coast of Oregon we ran across the Prehistoric Gardens. A interesting walk through of dinosaurs and plants.
We headed back inland via the Oregon Caves and Grants Pass. We missed the Grants Pass Caveman, maybe next time.
Some shots of the caves.
We did find a great state park that had full hookups! We use rvparkreviews.com all the time and found this little gem there. The cost was about half that of private campgrounds.
One more roadside attraction was the Black Bird of Medford Oregon. It looks like its the mascot for a hardware store. They probably wondered why we stopped by :-).
We had an nice trip. The trailer did really well. We even got our first *thumbs up* heading down the freeway!
See ya down the road!
