Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.

Elk and a Snake

14 November 2012

It was finally a nice day so we decided to drive north on 101 toward Klamath.

We passed several Elk herds between Eureka and Klamath grazing so peacefully by the highway. One herd seemed to be mostly does, while the other was a mixture with some huge bulls. Of course I had to to stop and take pictures.

Mostly Does

Day was going good until we got to Trinidad, a very scenic coastal community just north of Eureka. As I started down the steps to view the lighthouse memorial to sailors lost at sea, a snake crossed my path.
Why is always I who see them? As many of you know, I am terrified of snakes no matter the size. As I ran back to the car, I mentioned my reason for terror and two tourists had to go and inspect the reptile. Hope this is not an omen of things to come on the trip. No,I did not take a picture as I can't even look at pictures of them.

I did manage to get  some pictures of the lighthouse and coast.

To calm my nerves, John suggested we go back to the pizza restaurant for more of the delicious pizza.
