2015-04-26 Ukiah Elks Lodge 1728

Thursday, the 23rd, we left Travelhome RV Park in Yuba City, CA, and drove 121 miles to the Ukiah Elks Lodge 1728. The lodge has 8 parking lot sites with water and 30 amp electric and dump on site for $20 per night. It is not destination beautiful, but no complaints for a few nights.


Friday, we drove the Jeep 150 miles to visit 2 lighthouses. WE followed CA-128 to Booneville,, and then Mountain View Road To CA-101 and Point Arena Lighthouse. Then we took CA-101 north to Mendocino to the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse. Next, we drove back to the Ukiah Elks via CA-20. image. The whole route had its ups, downs, twists and turns to get to the Pacific Coast and back. Mountain view road was the worst, because it started out small and got smaller. It has a warning not for semi’s. It did start with a double solid yellow line down the middle, but then there would be a sign that the road narrows and the yellow lines would disappear. I presume that even C-DOT is not allowed to cut down Redwood Trees, because the road would narrow to one lane between two trees.


We did enjoy the lighthouses. Point Arena Lighthouse is one of the tallest on the West Coast, with beautiful views in each direction. IMG_6009IMG_6014IMG_6016. There were flowers on the bank and two whales swimming by. IMG_6018IMG_6022.


Point Cabrillo Lighthouse can’t be reached by car. After driving to the State Park, you have to walk a half mile down a paved path, and of course back up again. IMG_6025IMG_6026IMG_6027. Of course we still enjoyed our visit. IMG_6032IMG_6033IMG_6035.


Before starting back to the Elks, we stopped at McDonald’s for a couple of McDoubles for lunch about 3pm.


Type at you later.
