Redding to Blue Lake California


We packed up and left Redding our usual time about 10, the bedroom slide cooperated no problem.  We are heading to another casino parking lot, Blue Lake Calif., up highway 299.  No rain but very overcast.

The road started out pretty ruff, the cupboard doors came open things were air born in the MH nothing was safe.  The kitty’s went into hiding, afraid of the flying projectiles.  After the first few miles the highway was pretty smooth.  It did take 6 hours to drive the 139 miles, it was the curves and switchbacks, up and downs, over a few mountain passes and some pretty steep grades.  Not my favorite drive.  If you have the least bit car sick this is not the road for you.

Every mountain road needs some repair.

The drive was beautiful the scenery was unbelievable, and you had plenty of time to see everything.  I don’t think we ever got over 40 mph.

There were plenty of places to pull over on the side of the road to take in the scenery.
