Traveling to Eureka along the Highway 101, 250.7 miles in 4.5 hours.

Since this was Napa Valley, and we had stayed in the southern part overnight, we were delighted to see all the name brand wineries as we traveled through Napa Valley to the north. We passed through the old towns of St. Helena and Calistoga and headed to the Redwoods.

We were beginning to see the evidence of the lumber industry as logging truck passed us both directions. We were now in the Giant Redwoods following along the Eel River. We were on the Avenue of the Giants.

We settled in to the Eureka Elks RV park and caught up with errands and shopping.
