monday...

we 46ed it to the 101 to the 196 to the 25... the 198 is a beauty of a road... but the 25... o my... another 2 up rider and passengers dream of a stretch of asphalt...

scenery from the 198...



the 25... once again... micki was holding on...











looked at the pinnacles...





had to stop as casa de fruita... the burger was good... i know its a trap but they got some interesting consumables... we were fully packed so we could get much...





152ed it back to the 101 back to milpitas and put the motobrick back on the lorry... our tuesday job was a 2am start... 1 more day here then off to tulare... one of our favorite central valley job areas...

take care...

I enjoyed seeing the San Simeon photos. My wife and I honeymooned at Moonstone Beach almost 20 years ago.

Mineral King 09-20-08

http://mineralking.us/about.html

back in tulare ca again... for 1 weekend anyway...

after reading the v town pashnit gangs mineral king jaunt... i had to go... micki was busy so i went 1 up... good thing... we could do it 2 up... we have been on these kinda goats before... but 1 up was more enjoyable im sure...

so i buzzed out the 198 and filled up at the cheveron in 3 rivers... it 57 miles round trip from the cheveron to the end of the road and back...





the bug eye motobrick was getting into the red today...



the bridge over the kaweah river...



the river is spectacular... i want to see it during snow melt...







i got a feeling this would be covered in water in the early spring...



this ride has it all... the desert of the central valley... the picturesque foot hills... and then full on wilderness...





and some big trees along the way...



the smell of pine needles... although very smoggy today... the pine scent prevailed in the cool air climbing to 7200 feet...



the north facing hills still had some water flowing... the sun wasnt in the best position for good photos...



this is where im heading...



they say that mineral king is the glacier divide of the eastern sierras and the western sierras... just what i read... just saying...



the end of the road...



more later...

the dirt portions went from smooth and firm to washboard and crazy... especially on some of those off camber switchbacks...





motobrick and mother earth... looking out for each other...









unmarked cattle guard in a hairpin...



rolling down the hill...



it was a beauty of a ride...



the lake between lemon cove and 3 rivers is just a puddle these days... notice the water line... our first time here... 6 years ago... the lake was way higher...







there you go...
