|Got a late start on the day. I think we got
out around 11:00 or so. Got gas and we were on our way.
|Great roads like this the whole way.
|Foresthill Bridge just before crossing the
|Lots of people near the water.
|After going to Georgetown, approaching
Stumpy Meadows Lake.
|Hmmmmm, probably not going 55.
Along this road, a huge bug dropped from the tree or something and
smacked me right in the cheek just under my sunglasses. Hurt like !@#@$
Well, I started to blink my eye, and noticed my eyelid was sticking
together. When I got to Mel's, I had to wash bug guts off my eyelid and
from the inside of my sunglasses. So gross.
|Yes, that is snow on the side of the hill. It was sooooo cold. We had to stop at Ice House Road and warm up in the sun a little.|
|Great views on Ice House Rd.||Big mistake going to Placerville for lunch. First, Apple Hill is in full force, and Placerville had a jazz festival going on. Traffic was awful. We finally made it to Mel's Diner for a "hepatitis burger" and fried zucchini.|
