Easter Weekend 2009
Click on pic for larger view. Will open up in a new window.
|After a week of rain and cold weather, I
was determined to get out for a ride on the first really nice weekend
we've had in a while.
|On Auburn-Folsom Rd. These two guys on Big Bear Choppers led the way.|
|Rode through old-town Auburn and snapped
this pic of a big statue.
|On Hwy 49 just outside of Auburn heading to
Cool. The clouds were really neat.
|Approaching the bridge to go to Cool.
|South fork of the American River.
|The new dam bypass road was open. It takes
the place of the road going over the Folsom Dam that was closed after
|Approaching the new bridge.|
|Crossing over the American River as it
starts at Folsom Dam.
|Folsom Dam had a lot of purple flowers
around it. Hard to see here, but it was nice.
|Folsom Lake actually had water in it. Last time I was here, the water was very low. Lots of sailboats on the water.||Stopped at the McD's for a .39 cent cone on the corner of Auburn-Folsom and Greenback. Just after I took this picture, an old guy and his wife in a pickup drive by and yells, "Hey! Harley riders don't eat ice cream cones!" Too funny. But it was a great way to end a short 102 mile ride.|
