A Bridge not too far: The Golden Gate Bridge – Day 5

It is time to go home. Before I started last stretch of the trip back home, I followed a path towards the beach, to say good bye to the ocean.

Here it is.

Looks like my South Atlantic. Cold, windy, and hard packed sand.

I had the hotel’s free breakfast as usual, read the local paper, and packed the bike.

In Reedsport I took Hwy 38 and went inland. Stopped on the Elk viewing area.

If you are keeping score about all the wild life I mentioned I had seen along this trip, here is the last one: A Jaguar (of the kind that can still be called a Jaguar).

And I made it home. Mission accomplished on all counts.

Last day was a short day. 201 miles (321 km).

Stats for July 28th, 2011

Total stats for the trip: 1,395 miles (2,252 km).  And I’m ready to do it again and spend time on the places I missed this time around.

Thank you for reading.

    Great Trip Report! Loved all the photos and commentary. I’m headed from Portland to Palm Springs at the end of the month for a 10 day R/T tour of California. Hope to hit some of the places you visited (especially the Lost Coast)

      Thank you Bart. I had a great time during that short trip. I felt it was a great experience and only hoped I had more time so I could stay at more places along the route. Have fun!
