West Coast - USA

Post by Osred » Tue Mar 31, 2009 10:43 pm

How I love the West Coast. :rad: The following photographs were taken in March 2008 on a trip from Seattle, Washington to San Diego, California via Interstate 5 and back to Seattle via U.S. Highways 1 and 101. I clocked in more than 3000 miles over the course of this trip while on my 1990 BMW R100GS, a tried and true machine. As you can see, I really took a shine to San Simeon State Park and the surrounding area. I would say that the best stretch of road was northbound from San Luis Obispo to San Francisco along the coastline. Enjoy!

nice shots - thanks for posting them. I used to live in Los Osos, which is the back part of Morro Bay, just east of San Luis Obispo. I taught at the high school in Cambria which is a few miles south or San Simeon.

I do miss that place.............. :cry:

Steve,

I regret not giving you a call when I was in the area! Next time for sure.

Cheers,
Chris

Nice trip! I did it from Portland, Oregon to LA in late November '95 with my Ford Probe GT, sunroof open all the way.

A friend has what looks to be a similar BMW. He and his wife just got back from a trip from Germany to South Africa via Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Ethiopia and the rest of the east coast of Africa, return via Dubai, NYC, Newfoundland and across Canada to Calgary. Check out their website at http://www.ekke-audrey.ca/index.htm for some fantastic photos and narrative.
