160 miles started  by meeting Roy at Carl's Jr. in Auburn for lunch and then heading back to Grass Valley. Passing Lake Arthur.

 

On Pleasant Valley Road heading to the covered bridge.

In front of the visitor center. It had A/C, so that's where we stayed for a while!

 

Big Brown Bear. Grrrrr.

Interior shot of the bridge. There were little windows all over.

 

The two streams of water on the left made for good rafting/tubing. Lots of kids enjoying the water.

Lots of squirrels lounging around on the rocks. Heading back to Roy's house. Went the back way that went by the fair grounds.
