Laguna Seca

We are at another of our old standbys, Laguna Seca Raceway (map). We've been here for two nights, visiting with Louise's dad and step-mom, who live just a few miles down the road. We had a nice visit.

This is a comfortable spot, with scenic spaces high on a hill and 30-amp power hookups. It's pricey for a county park, at $30 per night (plus another $2 for the dog), but there are few other choices in this area -- parking-lot stays are not an option in Monterey. Nighttime temperatures have been in the 30's, so the power came in handy to run our electric heaters, and we'll take advantage of the dump station on our way out this morning. Our spot here overlooks a section of the track, and we got to watch motorcyclists practicing yesterday morning.

Today we will head up CA68 towards Salinas, and cut over to US101 at Spreckles. 101 will bring us down the Salinas valley into Paso Robles, where we will pick up CA46 east into the Central Valley, passing the spot where James Dean crashed. We'll end the day somewhere between Lost Hills and Bakersfield.
