Here are a few pictures Becky took on our trip from Yreka to Weed and then on to Bend.
You say, “What’s with that crazy route”? As we were heading up to Weed, Becky and I were not satisfied with the RV Park choices. She found some in Yreka so I said “Go for it”. I was busy driving and not thinking that we were supposed to turn on to Highway 97 at Weed on our way to Bend. We parked for the night in Yreka and I got up the next morning, poured my first cup of coffee and fired up the laptop. I wanted to check our route. I looked at it with the strangest thought – we made a wrong turn or didn’t make the turn at all! I’m glad we laughed about it after I told Becky. No big deal, it was only 29 miles back to Weed from Yreka. Besides, we got to see a gorgeous stretch of I-5 twice!
We could have continued north on I-5. I just did not like the other route around the north side of Crater Lake due to a couple of very long grades. I talked on the phone with Harry about it as he had driven trucks in that part of the country for many years. One day it will be fun to take Dreamscape down there for a week or two, just not this trip.
More snow along the way. What a gorgeous part of our trip!
