I was out that way 2 years ago and rode that Hwy 101 from south of San Francisco all the way up in Washington state. What a beautiful scenic ride. We crossed on a ferry at Puget Sound. We were gone for 28 days and travel 9100 miles.
It is a very nice ride. There are sites we passed by that I want to see.
9100 miles is a very good ride.
I plan on spending more time in the southern part of the state in the near future, (if things go as planned)
