Seems we could use a little more activity here in order to keep this forum viable. These are some photos of past adventures that have likely been posted somewhere before. Each represents an enjoyable afternoon in the Northern California foothills. Gerry
I've used this road alot. It is the climb from Philbrook into Jones meadows. I am sometimes surprized to find folks in the family sedan trying to make their way up, geeez
Lava-cap at about 900' elevation. This was 'the' road for about eight miles. A fall on this would be a broken wrist for sure. It was a long day at at about 140 miles.
Thirty years ago, my clothes would be off and my bare-butt planted on some wet rock. Now it just does not seem to be the right thing to do.......
Getting closer to sunset so I had to step-up the pace. Think I had been looking for Frenchman's Grave.
Another frequently used road. A recent fire change the scenery a lot so this particular ride was a whole new experience.
A road 'less traveled' at least for me. This is Southwest of Lake Almanor.
I had been looking for the 'starting point' of the big fire. It was about another half mile up the trail. Two weeks earlier I was on a ride when a thunder storm passed through. Lots of lightening strikes. By the time I got to high ground to report this one (cell phone) the 911 dispatchers were so overwhelmed, when I said I would like to report a fire, the fellow replied "you and everyone else". I was a bit pissed to get this kind of response, but since there are lots of Mt. communities in the area, suspect emergency services had been pushed to the max. A number of the strikes burned for over a week. This particular fire involved less than 100 acres (I think). I ended up finding the tree that took the initial hit.
Be safe my Friend......
