    Big Trees State Park

    My new favorite ride

    This is my new favorite ride. I've rode to Mount Diablo and to Yosemite but Big Trees is now my favorite. Diablo has a lot of bicyclists which makes me nervous. Yosemite has a lot of traffic and pedestrians on the road. Even on a holiday traffic is light up on the way to Big Trees.




    Below are the pictures Steve took and he wrote the comments:

    July 4th 2009 Calaveras Big Trees...

    This July 4th 2009 we rode to Calaveras Big Trees in CA. We meet in Stockton CA, and ride east on HWY 4. The riders where Mike (HD), Lucy (HD) , Rachel (HD), Debra (HD), Kyle and Brooke(Gold Wing), Kenny (Valkyrie), Jerry (V-star 1300), Myself and Heather (Gold Wing) and a friend of Rachelís (HD) my bad I did not get his name.

    From Stockton to the Big Trees Park it is about a 1 hour and half ride, once in the park we headed to the lookout over view to check things out and stretch out a little before heading to the visitor center and a short hike.

    After a little break we headed down the hill, the trail we did was the 1.5 mile North Grove, the trail is flat and an easy walk for people not in great shape (myself). At the beginning of the trail there is a very large tree stump.



    Kyle is acting like he is the tree.



    Kenny is pointing at the age ring on the tree for the year he was born, can you say old!



    Jerry is taking a break in the shade of the large tree.



    I see Heather looking at me, I think she is telling me to jump!

    The paths in the park are great, makes for easy walking.



    Kinda look like a lava flow.







    After the hike and a short rest we headed home.

    Very cool. It's neat for me to see these pics and posts from the West coast; keep 'em, coming!
    Oh I used to be disgusted
    and now I try to be amused.

    Big Trees State Park

    :?: Can anybody tell me what its like to shoot at Cherry Creek State Park? It seems very expensive and I imagine they are pretty controlling.
