Day 4 Bandon to Humbug Mountain State Park 38 miles (total miles 163)

We are finally on the road again after a few days of hiding out from the rain.  We left The Danish Shipbuilders House around 9 am and found the first 30 miles of riding from Bandon to Port Orford to be rather boring rolling countryside as the highway veered inland. 

Skies were overcast and somewhat foggy but we saw no rain finally.   We caught our first glimpse of the Pacific again as we entered the little town of Port Orford where we had lunch at the Crazy Norwegian Cafe which had a 95% positive rating on urban spoon.  Even these little towns have lots of urban spoon ratings for most of the restaurants.  Lots of travelers with iPhones pass through here I guess.

After a satisfying lunch of clam chowder and pie it was back on the bikes for the final 7 miles to our campground on Humbug Mountain.  Here is a view of the Pacific from the Highway between Port Orford and Humbug Mountain.

And here is Humbug Mountain itself shrouded in mist.   

This is our campsite at the base of the mountain.

Tomorrow we have 50 miles to our next campsite at Harris Beach State Park outside of the city of Brookings.   But first we have to climb over Humbug Mountain in the morning.
