NorCal coast suggestions
I'm heading north in hopes of making it rain. Usually it works.
I've got a bit of time so I thought I'd hit some campgrounds on the coast I have so far not stayed at. I'll probably spend the first night at Manchester SB, although I might pull into Armstrong Redwoods/Austin Creek depending on how late I leave. I used to spend first nights at the walk-ins at Pomo or Willow Creek, but they're closed (as are Ft Ross, Russian Gulch, Gold Beach campgrounds and several others).
Others I've never stayed at are either of the Navarro camps (one on coast, one in redwoods); Van Damme, Westport-Union Landing, Patricks Point, Humboldt Lagoons, Jedediah Smith SP, Harris Beach (OR). There are a bunch of county parks; I haven't stayed at any of those north of Stillwater Cove. I may spend some time at Mattole River; I've stayed there but just as an overnight before heading down the coast backpacking. Probably won't stay in Humboldt Redwoods; been to those camps, Salt Pt, and bunch of other ones.
So any suggestions on these let me know. Still not sure how I'm gonna get back if I go as far as OR; probably just retrace steps and head over 199 to Grants Pass, or more like back down and over 36. I like to check out the Sacto Wildlife refuges this time of year although it's so dry it's probably a bad year. Maybe stay up by Fouts or something depending on weather or just bomb home. Obviously kinda last minute.
