Zamora to Zamora
|What a great day to take the new
bike out for a little stretch. Today's little stretch ended up being about
275 miles of some really nice scenery. Started out by meeting Ed at
Zamora, then we were off. The area around Lake Berryessa was really cool.
These pics above are toward the end of the day. We stopped at Monitcello
Dam to look at the big toilet (see later pic).
|On our way to Cache Creek. The scenery was
like this the whole day. Lots of green land, blue skies, and big puffy
|Ed checking out the his and hers pair of Fat Boys at Cache Creek. We were going to go to Lakeport to have lunch at Renee's, but decided as we approached Cache Creek that we wanted to eat at China Camp!|
|More scenery on Hwy 53 to Lower
|We stopped in Lower Lake for gas, then
proceeded on Hwy 29 to head to Lake Berryessa. Took the opportunity to get
this pic of Ed just outside of Lower Lake.
|Just before getting to Middletown, we took a left on to Butts Canyon Rd. Passed this neat little cemetery on the way.|
|On the way to the lake, there was this little
stretch of road that was lined with hub caps. I would guess about 1/4 mile
worth. It all culminated to this section where this field was lined with 'em.
Pretty neat to see.
|Here's Ed heading toward the lake.|
|Took a butt break at Smittle Creek. We plan
on coming back here with bbq stuff and have lunch.
|Really nice area. There's a trail that goes all the way back around the lake.|
|Stopped off at the Monticello Dam to look at the big toilet, the black hole, or whatever you want to call it. It's just a big hole. :)||I was here on the Ptomain
to Tomales run. Seems like Terry could have used something like this
on that trip!
|We ended up following a bunch of
other bikes, including one with a sidecar. This guy would take his sidecar
up on every right turn he made. I took this pic just as they were heading
on to the 505 freeway outside of Winters.
|Came back to Zamora for a break before heading home. The wind started to kick up a bit. Luckily, I was heading with the wind.||The ride home was nice. Stopped off at Becky's new apartment on the way home and visited with them for a bit. Roy and Joanne were helping her move stuff in, so that's why Roy missed this great ride. We'll do it again soon.|
