The coastline - heading south - yes, that is snow up in those hills. This is the first spot where you can actually see the Oregon Coast from the highway for about two hours of driving. I was sorry I didn't take photographs of this oddly charming coastal town. The cold wet weather was limiting my captures. This was not due to personal discomfort. My hotel reservation for this night was in Arcata, California.
The next day I had an early morning appointment with a client nearby, so it was important that I make it to Arcata that night. I was not carrying snow tires nor chains - and wanted to get past the fairly high coastal mountains that the highway traverses just south of Crescent City, California. I knew if I could reach them before the sun got low - that there should be no problem.
