    Bodega Bay was the setting for Hitchcock's The Birds.

    Point Reyes lighthouse is worth seeing.

    Try for either Stinson or Muir beach before the Golden Gate.

    Monterey Bay aquarium, 17 Mile Drive, Point Lobos, Carmel-By-The-Sea for lunch.....

    About 30-35 miles south of Bixby Bridge on PCH is the turn-off for Nacimiento-Ferguson Rd. One of the
    best mountain roads I've ever ridden. Good route to cross the valley for Yosemite after crossing Bixby Bridge.

    Hearst Castle above San Simeon.

    Oceano Dunes. And Fish-N-Chips!!

    Barely puts a dent in it.........

    So many places, so little time! lol Tracy has an operation scheduled for Oct 18, so we have to be back in Texas by Oct 17. We are just skimming the surface on this trip.

    It would take a year to see much of CA.

    There's another great route to get you over the Sierra Nevada. You can
    pick it up at California Hot Springs and it passes near Trail of 100 Giants
    and through Sequioa National Forest. Good route to Death Valley. Might
    be closing soon for winter.

    Not too much traffic, although the further south we get, the more traffic there will be.

    No hay mucho tráfico, aunque más al sur llegamos, más tráfico habrá.

    There are areas along the Oregon Coast with sand dunes. Some of the areas allow motos, dune buggies, etc.
