Several people have told us that the highway down the California coast is not for Maxx but hubby really wants to see it, so we ventured down to Eureka today. The highway from Crescent City to Klameth is twisty and a lot of uphill and downhill sections but we have a powerful truck, with an engine break, so we didn’t have a problem. The only other slow area is just after Orick where the road is narrow and very twisty as evidenced by this sign 🙂
But we didn’t fall over and as long as you take it slow the road was fine. The balance of the drive is four-lane highway. So far Highway 101 has been a beautiful and very scenic drive. We think it is Highway 1 (the Pacific Coast Highway), not Highway 101 that is not the place for Maxx.
We plan to spend a few days in Eureka, catching up on laundry and grocery shopping before heading further down Highway 101 to San Francisco.
Until next time …
