We left bright and early, something like 8:30 or so...
Around lunch time we hit Yreka. Tony said he had read there was a good bakery in own, but we didn't find it. Instead we ended up at this pizza place which was OK, but not a good enough reason to visit Yreka.
Tony thinking - Do I have to put up with these guys for another 2 days in the truck (this is after only 4 hours of driving):
The road through southern Oregon and Northern California is always interesting, even when you stick to the highway.
We were down in the central valley when the sun went down and we still had quite a ways to go to Buttonwillow
We stopped for dinner at an I-5 diner:
Buttonwillow turned out to be a less than optimal stop on weekends. There always seems to be something going on at the track, so the motels fill up early. We got the last non-smoking room available and it cost us more than I expected. The laws of supply and demand seem to be alive and well in Buttonwillow.
