    Interstate heading south.


    DSCF1423 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Decided to heck with the interstate and headed to the coast in Oregon instead of going south and into northern California like last year.

    This a plywood plant.


    DSCF1424 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Cooling pond across the road from the plant. They used sprinklers to spray the water into the ponds.

    Overnighted in Brookings OR. Nice motel at the north end of town with an ocean view.

    Really liked the pictures of the cloud in the valley, and the lighthouse.
    Always been puzzled why to cool water it is sprayed into a cold pond causing loads of steam, whereas piping it into the cold water would immediately cool it down without causing all the water loss through creating all the steam?

    All of the shots with cloud are actually shots of fog from the ocean. The last batch of pictures were all from Highway 1 that follows the coast. It went from driving through the fog to driving over it. The last two pictures above, where you see the cloud is fog covering the ocean. It seems to start dissipating once it hits land.
    This year was very different weather than last year. A lot less rain coming down on me during the day, more sun shine , but there was the fog from the ocean.


    Not trying to be educational here but....

    The cooling ponds are just that. The water in the ponds is as hot as the steam/vapour makes it look. High humidity and coolish temps help make it look like more. The process used to make plywood produces a lot of heat so water is used to keep things cool. So the ponds have a lot of heat in them and the water sprinklers spraying the water try to dump the heat in the air.
    So it is not really cold water making the steam but hot water.

    End lecture.

    Those of you with trailers and RV's will need to leave them behind now. They will not make it all of the way and there are no turn arounds after the two mile one.


    DSCF1502 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Starts out ok.


    DSCF1503 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Right turn takes you to where the bridge over the river used to be. You want to keep straight.


    DSCF1504 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    No issues so far.


    DSCF1505 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Starting to hint at road issues.


    DSCF1506 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    The asphalt seems to have disappeared. Lets park and have a look around.


    DSCF1510 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    The ocean is to the left.


    DSCF1509 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1508 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    The sign says RV's and trailers prohibited. The road looks better than it actually is.


    DSCF1511 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1512 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    DSCF1518 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1519 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1520 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Road off of the "main" road that went down steep and then some and around a few down corners, down some more to a nice parking lot with a few walks to ocean views.


    DSCF1521 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1523 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1525 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    From the ocean cliff to the parking lot.


    DSCF1526 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1527 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Shooting north. The river from the park stop is at the top right of the picture.


    DSCF1528 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Took this one because the cliff goes down pretty straight and far.


    DSCF1529 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Also took the above to show this. In the lower left light grey rock in the above was this.


    DSCF1530 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Back on real road.

    Hi ssicarman!

    Thanks for the info on the 'Heat Transfer Process'.

    Those roads in the woods where RV's & Trailers are not allowed are not half as bad as the ones we get to go on nearly every day over here, along with Trucks (Semi's) Buses (Coaches) Cars, Camels & Donkeys not forgetting of course Pedestrians!

    Overnighted in Cloverdale, northwest of the Napa and Sonoma valleys.

    Coming up to the Richmond–San Rafael Bridge. No toll going east but going west there is a toll.


    DSCF1551 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    On the bridge.


    DSCF1553 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Looks like a double decker bridge.


    DSCF1555 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1556 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1557 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    Very strange looking at the GPS and see that you are driving on water.


    DSCF1559 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1560 by ssicarman, on Flickr


    DSCF1561 by ssicarman, on Flickr

    On land again to head south to Monterey.

    I thought I recognised that bridge! (Richmond–San Rafael Bridge) as I have been across it a couple of times when visiting SFO as well as the Golden Gate.

    Pity there are no 6 lane highways over here, it might help out or confuse the Camels as well as the locals who seem to like walking down the middle of a two lane road, especially in the town centre, while pushing a wheel barrow!
