Back to Arizona

We were in Oregon and weren't ready to leave this beautiful part of the USA, but had commitments.
Loaded up and heading for Arizona.
Located on Hwy 58

Willamette National Forest.
Was raining off and on, but was still beautiful.
Sunday.  No construction going on, but still had the pilot car leading drivers.
SolarReserve’s Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Facility located in Nevada is the first utility-scale facility in the world to feature advanced molten salt power tower energy storage capabilities

Picture stolen from SolarReserve's website.  Plant is located by Miller, NV and went online in late 2015

Modoc National Forest, located in California.

Some of the interesting things we saw when traveling.

25 mph speed limit through the whole town.

Saw lots of donkeys in Nevada.  Alot near Beatty.

Located on Hwy 95.

Lots of open range.  Saw more horses along the side of the road then cattle. 

Joshua Trees.  Arizona has a Joshua Tree scenic byway (Hwy 60 between Wickiup and Wickenburg.

Don't have to go over the Hoover Dam anymore.  View point from new I-11.

Map makes it look like you can see the Hoover Dam, but you can't.

Only about 327 miles to go.

Lots of great four lane roads and lots of crap four lane roads in Arizona.

Big load.  Had a police escort, front and back. 

Sunset along Hwy 60 in Arizona.  From Depoe Bay, Oregon to our home (for now) in Arizona 1,320 miles in two days.

Otter Crest Loop

There weren't any close hiking trails so we walked the Otter Crest Loop. 

This is at the Ben Jones Bridge Viewpoint.

Also at the Ben Jones Bridge Viewpoint.

Ben Jones Bridge.

Waves crashing into the rocks.

Could watch this for hours.

Lots of crows in this area.

Seals in Whale's Cove.

Another photo of the seals.

JoAnn and I have been here before.

Saw lots of whales feeding when out walking. 

The USGC was out in full force in this area.  Would see them fly over several times a day and evening. 

This one was on a rescue of four people in the water.  Was told two people were pulled out of the water.  Was hovering, looking for the other two.  Was a USCG boat near by also looking.   

Just hovering over the water.  When this helicopter left to take the two to the hospital, two other USGC Helicopters showed up and were moving around the area for 30 minutes before they left.  Hope they found the other two people.

Further out photo of the USGC helicopter hovering over the ocean.

View located near the Devil's Punchbowl.

The Devil's Punchbowl.

Watching the waves come crashing in.

Guy on a surfboard.

Can't remember the name of these birds.  If you know, put it in the comment section.

Out in a Kayak.

Just another beautiful view.

As I said before, we saw lots of whales feeding.  Theses are the best photos from the loop we walked on.


Can see the tail in this one. 

This is a whale watching boat.  Good to use if one wants to see whales up close.
