10th Annual Dad's Ride. Perfect weather this year. Not too hot, not too cold. 8:30am -9:30pm. It was a long day, but it was really nice.

Weather was like this the whole way. Just a few clouds in the sky made for some great views.

 

Traffic was just about perfect. Passed a lot of other bikes along the way and everyone was having a great ride.

Every year, we try to get a good pic of this building. Every year, it's blurry. Lots of burned fields. It looked like a training day for fire fighters. A little further up the road, we saw a helicopter airlifting someone out of the forest.

The sign reads, "Nutritional Refueling Station". I call them, restaurants.

 

Sonora Pass is filled with roads just like this.

A little cool at this part, so there was still some snow left on the ground.

 

My favorite part of the ride.

Passed a verrrrry slow moving convoy of military vehicles.

 

3 helicopters on the tarmac at the Marine Training Facility.

Lunch at Walker Burger is always good after 4 hours on the bike. Heart shaped onion ring. This was paired with a double bacon cheeseburger, fries....and a diet Pepsi.

Ed, across from the Nugget. We're going to try their Awful Awful someday.

Cloud shaped like a bird coming in for a landing.
