Day 19 - US101 is #1
And I haven't mentioned food lately so I must remark that Brett is eating his camping cereal on this leg of the trip - Captain Crunch. It's the only time he gets to have it.
The journey today took us down I5 to Longview where we crossed the Columbia River into Oregon.
There are a very lot of very big trees here so it makes some sense that we would start to see logs and lumber operations of all sorts. Weyerhaeuser has a big place at the port. I would like to thank them for that. This is the place where I was reminded rather sharply that I should not just point when giving driving directions. Thankfully, a huge tree place had a huge place in which to turn around.
Except for here. Here they had to climb over this mountain and then keep going down the beach.
It was very windy down on the beach. I'm afraid that my camera lens got quite a salt and sand bath. The temperature did remain quite pleasant until the sun went down.
