Thursday, July 9, 2008 I left Glide and headed south for Jacksonville, OR. I had made arrangements to take a tour by Segway of this old mining town. I happened to be the only rider for the afternoon tour, and since I had basically seen the town by way of an afternoon street trolley tour, the guide took me off the beaten path along a hiking trail above the town (pictures below). Also took an interesting ride through the old town cemetery.



By early evening I was in Monterey, where I took these pictures of the "Moon Tree," just down the street from Veteran's Memorial Park where I spent the night (right in the heart of town). It's a Coast Redwood planted from a seed that had been taken to the moon!

I visited Cannery Row in Monterey first thing in the morning and toured the aquarium for a few hours before heading home.







On 46, just before joining I5, I drove through the Lost Hills Oil Producing area, where there are hundreds upon hundreds of oil wells. I had not originally intended on driving all the way home but, what can I say? Only a few hundred miles to go!!!
