Bikers Beware

Dave and I rode out of the RV park this morning headed for that portion of Hiway 49 which runs through Tahoe National Park and over Yuba Pass (6,708 ft). There were 35 miles of flat, mostly straight two and four lane hiway to get to that point just beyond Loyalton where we saw the sign that read "BIKERS BEWARE, 42 MILES OF DEAD MAN CURVES AHEAD". The next 75 miles of twists and turns, uphill and down along the North Fork of the Yuba River were a blast. We were treated to some gorgeous scenery along the way. We stopped in North San Juan for gas and lunch at 49'ers Pizza - very tasty. The road beyond North San Juan was under repair, so we reversed our course and reveled in the ride all over again. Snow is forcast for Saturday and the day never really warmed up, but Dave in his heated clothing and I in my long johns stayed snug and warm.

Tomorrow we're off to Lone Pine, CA.
Snow is coming a day early - tomorrow - maybe. Hope it doesn't affect our plans. We are discussing options.

I'm extremely jealous! Sounds like a lot of fun. I'd love to be scraping pegs with you two.
