Tuesday July 26th, Garberville to Santa Rosa

We left the cool of the redwoods and decended to warmth of Santa Rosa. Santa Rosa had temps in the low 90's which reminded us of home.

From Garberville to Leggit was a series of hairpin turns and twists that slowed us down to 10 mph at times. When we got out of the turns we stopped at a scenic overlook.

We got to the park where the group reservations were only to find that ghere werent really group reservations. Luckily we found a few names we recognized and said "were with them." The campground was dry and dusty and had a desert feel.

We went straight to the campsite and setup, we realized we missed the planned dinner so we went with Charlie, Gary and Melissa to downtown Santa Rosa to get food.
