Long time, no read, my friends.
Late next month I'm schlepping the family up to Eugene, OR from So' Cal' for my niece's and nephew's graduation. On the return trip I want to wind our way down the coast from Florence, OR to the Napa Valley area via US 101. I can only remember one time as a child when my family took a back road to get to some wonderful scenery we usually whizzed past. On that trip it was Mattole Road from Ferndale to Dyerville through Petrolia and Honeydew. Whenever possible we stop in Ferndale to see the Victorian buildings as we stroll through town. We also like stopping at Founders Grove in Dyerville along the Avenue of the Giants.
Are there any more gems off the beaten path I should check out?
My kids are big on animals and nature, and we all appreciate vistas of the coast.
