Alternate Route…

After a lot of consideration Jan and I have decided to cancel the SLC & NE legs of our trip. When we woke up this morning Donners Pass was in worse shape than it was last night when we went to bed. We both decided it was in our best interest to head south and take an alternate route home. I’m sad that we wont see our friends and family along the way- but I guess that just gives us a good reason to make yet another trip! We are in Barstow, CA right now and trying to decide on the route we will take to continue the trip home.

As we were cruising down HWY 99 today we saw a couple of parachutists coming in for a landing- I grabbed my camera as quick as I could- and of course my timing was perfect- to get a nice shot of the power lines… oh well!

Otherwise the scenery was pretty much the same as it was on our way to Oregon…

During our whole trip to the coast, the Ocean has been showing us who is boss!

We had another beautiful day of riding- the scenery was absolutely gorgeous. Northern California and Oregon really are breathtaking. We saw lots of vineyards and of course the Redwoods and Ocean. The further north we went the cooler the air got. By the time the day was over I had on 5 layers. I looked like a puffed up marshmallow- but hey, I was warm!

Day 7 Road Trip- May 26, 2008 part I

This has to be one of the ugliest WELCOME TO signs I’ve ever seen! Such a disappointment after missing the Arizona sign yesterday.

Woohooo— We are on the west coast!
