On the way to Yuba City to meet Roy for lunch. Got out of the house on time, so I took the "scenic route" and took Elkhorn Blvd instead of the freeway. Followed this van for a little bit and if you click on the pic to make it bigger, you can see my reflection in the back of the van.

 

Cool reflection in the water.

Sutter Buttes and some rice fields. Lots of sun and cool weather.

Had to take a small detour to get on to Bridge St. I think this is on Wilbur St. Nice little park area to sit and relax.

 

Crossing the river.

On Simpson Ln heading toward Beale AFB.

 

As we were on the backside of Beale AFB, we saw this pair of  U2 planes flying and landing.

One U2 plane at top left, the other bottom left just getting ready to land.

 

This is a nice road, especially during the spring when it's all green.

The road undulates a lot. Looks like a lot more fun than it really is.

 

Big sweeping turns.

On Dog Bar Rd in Grass Valley. I have tried several times to get this shot of the curve in the road. In person, it's really neat.

The Civil War guy got some cannonballs since the last time I saw him.

 

Heading home, there were a lot of Halloween decorations all over.

Lake Arthur. On Auburn-Folsom Rd during rush hour on a Furlough Friday. Traffic was worse on the other side of the road. It was a little warm, but still a great day for a 153 mile ride. Heading to Gold Country Casino tomorrow for the buffet!
