Journal Entry:
A great driving day. Stopped to play at the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, but it was to windy for anything so we took some pictures and moved on.

The Southern Oregon coast is spectacular and we had an unreal sunset. I tried to take pictures but I fear that they will be unsatisfying.

Driving into the Northern section of Redwood National Forest in the dark was a new experience. The giant trees loom out of the darkness, and the ribbon of the milky way visible far above the road feel very primal.
