Miyagi Saturday 2014

Postby hemingray » Sun Sep 14, 2014 4:06 pm

Hopefully others have pictures too - this is familiar scenery for me so I didn't take a lot of pictures. It was a fun (but dusty) day of 84 miles.

Sunrise at home was a nice one!

Image

Off to ride. First, the eastern bulk of English Mountain:

Image

A shadowed Bowman Lake.

Image

Did anyone notice the cool canyon view above Graniteville? Poorman Creek passes by in a shady canyon.

Image

Rollin' down at Relief Hill Road.

Image

Someone had a milestone! (not me, it's a Kawi!)

Image

Ah, the famous 1-mile shortcut. I have since discovered that as the hawk flies, it's 2.5 miles from that sign to Graniteville Road. 1 mile is impossible from there.

Image

While we were out finding the 1-mile shortcut, EigerMike spotted a smoke column which ended up being over in Alta Sierra off Dog Bar Road.

Image

Still searching for that shortcut, so a consultation was made at one of the previously passed intersections.

Image

And off we go....

Image

The view looking east up the South Yuba Canyon.

Image

We eventually reached Graniteville Road, with only a short bit of already-run mileage.

The track says that from the intersection of Graniteville Road to McKilligan Grade Road as we came in says 4.6 miles. The mileage from the same intersection, back to Graniteville on our 1-mile shortcut - with excursions - was 6.3 miles. Yay for shortcuts!!

Little Jackson Creek Falls is still running.

Sunset through the forest, just above Tollhouse Lake.

I'm looking forward to what pictures others took too. I did not take any pictures even though every year I say I should.

Good pix John, thanks for covering the crawlin' part!

Happy to get the odometer pic - awhile ago I caught my truck at 200K, I wandered around a bit until it tipped the number because I thought I would forget it!
