One of the most breathtaking places I've ever seen is a place called Fern Canyon.   If you have just one more day, this is a must see thing to do.

Just down the road and up the mountain a bit from Kamp Klamath, in Klamath, California is one of the most beautiful, secluded and unknown picnic areas that I've ever seen.  No RV's or trailers allowed past the turn off  point on Beach Road because the road turns into gravel, is narrow and has a 10% down hill grade.  You can walk down, or it's easy to take your tow vehicle.  We made the ride in our Roadtrek no proble...
