Eureka to Brookings : 17 August 2001

Set off from Eureka to Redwood National Park.* We parked up and went on a 2.5 mile hike, looking for elk. It was tiring – steep and slippy – but very beautiful. We saw elk too, but only from a distance. 

We had a Subway** at Crescent City (the last town in California) looking out to sea, then arrived in Brookings (first town in Oregon). Checked into the Beaver State Motel (snort). 

Went to the supermarket for something for dinner and then watched The Replacements with a bottle of wine. 

* The Endor scenes from Return of the Jedi were filmed there. Apparently.

** You may have noticed we did not eat well on this trip… (Subway, McDs, Burger King, etc., were all that we could afford most days.)
