Yellowstone to Boise, Idaho:
Only two things to note on this leg: 1. Sandstorm east of Boise, and 2. we had dinner at a Basque place in downtown Boise. This was only an overnight stop.
Boise to Crater Lake National Park
Your eyes are not deceiving you, I got 27.6 MPGs b/c that road (US-20 in eastern Oregon) was so slow and twisty. There were some straight parts too.
We stopped in Bend, Oregon for dinner. Big Island Kaluha (or something like that)…Hawaiian food.
Unfortunately, I have very few pictures of Crater Lake National Park, the two days we were there, it rained. And Crater Lake is about 7000 feet in the air, i.e. you were IN THE STORM CLOUD. I could not see a damn thing, including the lake!
Crater Lake to San Francisco
As many west-coaster likely have seen, Mount Shasta is there to greet you as you enter via I-5 in NorCal.
We could have taken the new Bay Bridge, but heck, it was more appropriate to take the Golden Gate Bridge!
Final trip tally. That’s right, prior to my trip, I drove about 5000 miles in 9 months.
My impressive bug collection driving in farm country NorCal.
