Bluefin,,,,,make sure you go to Glass Beach in Ft Bragg and see the glass and find out about the history as to WHY the beach is full of glass,,,,,,and yes, Ft Bragg isn't inland,,,,it's right on the Pacific Coast,,,,,,,also if you're an Alfred Hitchcock fan......Bodega Bay is in the area where The Birds was filmed. I've been to all the National Parks in California,,,,and I would put Joshua Tree on the bottom of my list and Yosemite on the top. In between you'd love the Redwood Forest, which includes Avenue of the Giants, Kings Canyon, Lassen, Sequoia and Death Valley. But I'm sorry to say that Joshua was our least favorite National Park. While we were at Yosemite, we thought we were in God's living room. When you're in the Dallas area at Dinosaur Park,,,go see Fossil Rim right down the road. To get through the Dallas area and keep your sanity going north, I recommend taking IH 35W through Ft Worth instead of IH35E through Dallas. 35W and 35E merge after the Dallas Ft Worth Metropolitan area. I live in the Austin, Texas area and have tried 35E several times and have torn my hair out each time wondering WHAT WAS I THINKING.

To the OP, You may not want to drive down Highway 1 South, to Ft. Bragg.
Depends on how big of a RV you have.
Did not know there were 2 FT Bragg. FT Bragg NC at Fayetteville is the largest military installation in the US. Even bigger since they annexed Pope AFB which is attached.

Were they jumping off the cliff there? They did when we were there a few years ago.

The State parks around the Olympic Peninsula have some neat historical type forts, bunkers and gunnery positions worth checking out if you like that sort of thing. In particular I liked Fort Worden in Port Townsend and Salt Creek recreation area west of Port Angeles. Both have RV camping facilities and Salt Creek has RV spots that are literally yards away from the Strait of Juan de Fuca. You can easily take a ferry for a day trip over to Victoria BC from Port Angeles.
The state parks and camping facilities along 101 in Oregon are great. Lots to do along the coast and simply unbeatable sightseeing. Unlimited opportunities to hike, go clamming or crabbing, pick wild chanterelle mushrooms, etc. etc. I think the trip down the Oregon section of the 101 is possibly one of the best RVing areas in the west.

Like someone else posted above, take your time and enjoy your retirement trip!

What size rig are you traveling with? Hwy 395 in the Eastern Sierra is designated as a scenic hwy. It's a beautiful drive from the Carson Valley in NV.( 25 minutes east of Lake Tahoe) and all the way south heading towards Joshua Tree. There are State and National Park campgrounds all along the route (many with size limitations.) The East gate into Yosemite (Tioga Pass) is on that route, also. Just south of Yosemite is the Mammoth and June Lake areas which are popular resort and recreation areas with many campgrounds. Continue south and pass more beautiful scenery and the quaint towns of Bishop, Independence and Lone Pine. After that you will hit the Mohave Desert and Red Rock Cyn. State Park. If you are into fishing, there are lakes and streams everywhere along 395. It's also very popular for hiking and mtn. biking.

Thanks for the good Ideas. may have to reconsider Joshua park. D.F.W. area does not look like fun for a northern MN guy I was thinking of cutting across country from the dino park and hook up with HWY 31 at Corsicana to Shreveport then North

We didn't see any parasailers. We were just in awe of the view of the valley and all you could see. Would love to stay in the lodge one night in one of the upper rooms with a balconey. Could sit there all night just enjoying the view. And they do have cottages to rent there along the cliff also.

I have been there twice and will go back again if in the area. Well worth the time to get there.
