Sights (and sites) Along the Way
 

Rogue River Canyon

One of the things we love about having an Airstream with us on our Trans-Americas Journey is the flexibility it gives us. If we see something we want to check out, all we have to do is flip on the turn signal secure in the knowledge that home is right behind us at all times.


Beautiful formations, still growing in the Oregon Caves National
Monument, one of many spontaneous stops along our way.

So despite the fact that Lassen Volcanic National Park is the goal we set out for at 8 am, by early afternoon we are pulling into the McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park to see what this little park has going for it.

 McArthur Burney Falls
Impressive 129 foot McArthur Burney Falls which
charmed us into staying for the night.

Turns out, quite a bit including a lovely sprawling campground with tent sites and charming cabins that almost give our Airstream a run for the money. Then there’s the falls which are impressively tall, refreshingly cool and unique in that natural springs actually emerge along the waterfall wall, creating a kind of curtain of water.
