My boyfriend Kelly had another enduro this weekend (a 100 mile dirt bike race, all on trails in the woods) so we set off for gold country on Saturday morning. We went through Sacramento and then over to Highway 49, stopping in Jackson for a look around and a grocery store. The tiny downtown historic district is absurdly quaint, but it's very crumbly and peeling so it retains quite a bit of charm despite the touristy nature of it.
It's very popular with bikers, who are mostly harmless these days.
I love the colors in this window.
The trees at dusk. It got close to freezing at night, which for us is really cold!
Kelly making pan fried bagels in the morning. They're really good, but NEVER watch how much butter he uses!
While Kelly raced I went for a 6 mile run/walk in the El Dorado national forest. Running is much harder going uphill at 5000' than sea level and flat, hence the run/walk.
This is a weirdly distorted picture of the San Francisco bay at sunset from highway 37. No crashing, injuries or breaking down van this time, so we'll call it a success!
