California and Oregon National Park Trail

May, 2002

Denise and I celebrated our anniversary this year with a trip to northern California and southern Oregon, to visit the scenic national parks.  We visited Muir Woods National Monument and Point Reyes National Seashore outside San Francisco, Redwoods National and State Parks between Eureka and Crescent City, Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, Lava Beds National Monument, and Lassen Volcanic National Park near Redding.  We drove over 1600 miles in our rented (from Alamo) Mitsubishi Montero in five days.  Along the way, we took a lot of pictures, so sit back and enjoy the trip.
