Beautiful 165 mile ride began at the bottom of the Foresthill Bridge.

 

The water was really rushing today.

Farther up the hill, snow started to creep out on to the road.

 

I could have ridden through the tire tracks, but it seemed a bit risky.

Just as soon as I started the camera to take this pic, a car comes around the corner and stopped to wait for me.

 

Moved my bike to here and took this pic.

Went past Folsom Lake. Lots of water. It was a great day for a ride and all on one tank of gas!
