We dallied in Oregon a bit longer and managed to eek out one more Junior Ranger badge. This one at Oregon Caves National Monument. Skulls, spiders, stalactites. Good stuff.
From here, it was a short drive to the California border. We were only in California for about an hour before we saw someone we knew. Jeremy, Maizy and Penny are roaming around the US in their Vanagon.
We met up later and camped at Gold Buffs beach. Awesome beach. Awesome people.
