Quick overview of days 4-5

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

We started out at Folsom today. We rode down and visited the prison there. It was another hot day, but we started off well. We stopped in Placerville, CA at an historic coffee shop. It was very cool. They had an authentic gold mine in the back and you could sit in part of the entrance. We left and were on our way once again. There were many hills to go up and down even a few river valleys. At the end of the day, we were riding to our bed and breakfast in Fairplay, CA. The bed and breakfast sat on one of the biggest hills we had to climb all day! It was worth it though. The place was beautiful and I really enjoyed cooling off in the pool. We met some new people from England, who were also riding cross the country.

We woke up to a very good breakfast this morning. Ater breakfast we decided to go back to bed for an hour-power nap before we got started. We left the bed and breakfast and headed out to another very hot day. We biked through the eldorado national forest and saw the huge red wood trees and pines cones that were almost a foot long! We worked our way through the mountiains and climbed up 3000 vertical feet. However unpleasant that may have been, riding through the semi-flat streches of the mountains were very nice. I do believe today's ride was a little easier than yesterday's. We stopped for dinner at a little country bar store and had hamburgers. Tonight we are camping along the trail.
