On our way out of Napa and to the coast the route we took lead us through part of Sonoma. As I was reading the wine magazine, I noticed we were going to pass right by Korbel Champagne Cellars, score. We made a game time decision to make one last stop in wine country, it was destiny. We had only tasted the Korbel Brut previously when we had bought it in a store once, so we were curious about the other bubbles they make. We entered the tasting room, and it was super busy. We found a spot at the bar and sweet older lady came over and asked if we had been helped - not yet. She explained that the tasting was free for four tastings, score! She suggested we each try different ones and that way we could taste eight, so we did. She made some suggestions and ended up that we really enjoyed the Natural and the Brut Rose, and we decided to grab a bottle of each (they were super cheap), and then we hit the road. 


Within a short distance from the enchanting wine country we found ourselves back on the coast again. As we began to gain some miles between us and the wine country we noticed the weather change. It went from sunny and hot, to damp, foggy and cool. It was like we entered a completely different country. It was simply just as enchanting but in its own way.


We found a state park on the map about halfway to Eureka where we were planning to  take the highway inland to the Lassen Volcanic National Park. The Russian River Gulch State Park was covered in fog, and we found that it was about 55 degrees outside. It was a neat little park we found with only about 20 sites, and a short drive to the beach. We set up camp and then went to the water. The water was super cold, but a neat little cove with a huge bridge that towered over. We walked along the beach for a while in the windy fog, and then we headed back to our site to fix dinner and enjoy a little campfire. 


It was a cold night, and a cold morning when we woke up. We fixed coffee and tea, broke down camp and were on our way north again.
