After departing from Grants Pass, Oregon ( ) back on my trip in January, I was headed towards Crescent City, California, which I had heard was fantastically beautiful (it was!) but to get there, I had to drive through Siskiyou National Forest, and it was… magnificent. An unexpected but much loved detour.

It was early in the morning when I pulled off the main road onto some random, seemingly abandoned trail/road that seemed to wind up-up-up into the mountains. Me and my little rental car where probably not the best equipped for a hike, but that didn’t stop me and after a slightly harrowing curving drive through that mountain road I ended up near a secluded section that just called to me to get out and explore a little. Little air in my lungs, improper shoes and a twinge in my side from a long drive where easy to ignore in the calm I found there. It was truely lovely, and if I hadn’t already been aiming for 2 other destinations for the day, I probably would have just stayed there exploring the rest of the mountain roads that seemed to endlessly branch out from the main highway. I’d truly love to go back one day.

    Looks amazing.. I’m planning a road trip on the West Coast this summer and just kind of picked Norcal cities to stop in randomly, including Crescent City. Good to hear (and see!) that there’s lots of beauty out there waiting for me :-)

      Ooop,so sorry for the late response, but yes! Crescent City is lovely and a fantastic place to stop in at, I only wish I had been able to spend more time there. See if you can stop in Ft. Bragg (if you can) as well, I had a blast there and theres just so much beauty :)
