We just returned from a short Redwoods trip in the Chinook. Drove down from Hood River through Grants Pass, Or. and Crescent City, Ca. to Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. Enjoyed the Howland Hill road. This unpaved 7 mile stretch was a highlight. This photo says it all for us. We were given permission to camp for free at the Elk Valley Casino in Crescent City. We called ahead and the manager could not have been nicer. The lot is patrolled by security 24/7.
