what peon is, but probably no.
I took too many pictures to write all the HTML code for. Instead I'll post some random shots and descriptions.
Day 1, 7:00 AM. 43* in Reno, 32* and snowing in Truckee. Ran smack into the beginning stages of a blizzard. Best option was to just keep going. It was the right choice. DR and I polishing off a beer in Fort Bragg. The food was awesome as usual. Bad pic, but oh well!
DR at the Leggett drive through Sequoia Redwood & another from the other side. I must be a tree hugger, because it seems like a shame to deface such a majestic living object. We rode the Avenue of the Giants after Hwy 1. We should have stopped and snapped off a picture inside some of the tree tunnels, if you will. There were fern bushes and green everywhere, but alas we were getting tired and needed to check in at our hotel after 400 miles of riding.
Day 2, Our planned route into Oregon was blocked by a late snow. So we made the best of it, having lunch near our turn around north of Happy Camp. DR's preparing lunch and I'm getting my wish to cool off and listen to nature. Rode Hwy 299, 96 and part of Davis Lane & also briefly on hwy 3, but it was too covered with sharp rocks, so we turned and went to Happy Camp. Through all our course changes which prevented us from continuing north, we ended up making an unplanned gas stop and happened upon a third rider.
DR looking on, while our little filly mystery rider buzzes past moments before a bird was to take off her left mirror.
Day 3, getting started after a big breakfast. DR doing his best to make sure I don't get a good picture of him. Rode Hwy 36 to Red Bluff, then Hwy 99 to Oro-Quincy Hwy home.
Time for one last big meal at our BBQ hangout in Oroville, before challenging the summit.
And DR wishing he had a comfortable sportbike to ride.
I think we totaled something over 1,100 miles and I'd do it again tomorrow if you gave me the chance.
