Well, it took half of today's ride time to leave the redwoods, not that I desperately wanted to. I saw one of the black-tailed deer as I was coasting along thru the redwoods, in Navarro River Redwoods State Park. And with the road construction, you couldn't expect to cover ground quickly. But I said goodbye to the cliff vistas and hello to the freeway experience, now I am plunked in Modesto to decompress and ready myself for more freeway on my way to Bakersfield, Needles and ... Arizona.
Yes, I am going to AZ and maybe this time I will get to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Hopefully the crowds should be less. That is what kept me heading to the North Rim last time.
Looking at the route thru Colorado and the weather forecasts shows me snow showers and cold conditions. That is what convinced me to wait for another trip. Pity, because I had some good roads picked out. No worries though, I think that there are places in AZ and NM I am interested in, and a few other southern states too.
