We headed south towards California, but drove a little farther along the Oregon coast. The weather here in the mornings is always cool (in the 40's) and windy and fits my image of the Oregon coast. It does warm up by the end of the day, but at noon it is still cool. At 2 to 3 it is a perfect time to walk on the beach in the warm sun. By 5 to 6 it is getting cool again and you need a jacket.
It seems that everything grows well here in the NW except maybe citrus.
Finally we made it over the California border.
We are staying tonight in Mount Shasta City which is near Mount Shasta. As we got closer to Mount Shasta it was amazing to see how tall it is--over 14,000 ft.
Tomorrow we head for Lake Tahoe.
