253 mile ride started out with clear skies and a great view of the Sutter Buttes. On the way to Sam's to meet Roy, I drove through my old apartment complex. This was my first place on my own. It overlooked the pool and spa. :)

Approaching Cache Creek casino. Parked in the garage at Cache Creek. On the way in, I revved my engine and actually set off a car alarm. Usually, it's Ed that does that!

Cache Creek didn't have much water. Some of the trees were starting to turn colors. Coming in to Williams from Hwy 20. It was a burn day and you can see a fire burning on the ride side of this pic.

Rode by the house I grew up in. Looks really good. Subtle changes, but basically the same.

 

Riding past our old store.

Double cheeseburger and fries. The burger was good, but they used to give you a lot more fries.

 

Crossing over the Sacramento River leaving Colusa.

On the river road, it got a bit smoky from all the fires.

 

Nice curve in the road heading in to Sutter.

Riding along the old bridge thing. Final pic just before heading home. Beautiful day, a little cool, but perfect riding weather.
