Enjoy getting to know your fellow travelers on the scenic ride.  Grab lunch in the quaint town of Ukiah. Onward to the breathtaking redwood groves along the Avenue of the Giants and Redwoods National Park. Take a walk beneath the massive trees and cool off in the Eel River.

Day 2

Northern California’s “Lost Coast” guides us through redwood forests and alongside sandy beaches into Oregon.  Trek across sand dunes and marvel at the famous Oregon haystacks rising out of the Pacific Ocean.  In the evening, head inland through the Siuslaw National Forest to our country campsite.

The opportunity to visit one of Oregon’s “Crown Jewels” will be sure to delight the waterfall chasers!  At Silver Falls State Park, walk behind a curtain of water and hike to a number of enchanting spectacles!  In the afternoon, the adventure bus heads north to the final destination: Seattle, Washington.  See the fish flying at the famous Pike’s Place Market, sip a latte from the original Starbucks and saunter along the waterfront.  We’ll see you on the next adventure!
