California Wine Country
We left Napa, and drove west toward Occidental,
our base for the next three days. We stopped in Glen Ellen at
a fabulous market, where we had coffee and chocolate cake. We
also found the prepared food section very enticing, and bought
dinner as well. We made a quick stop at Dave's Bike Shop in Santa
Rosa, before we finally settled in at Negri's Motel in Occidental.
The next days route was the toughest and most spectacular. Everyone
had said that King's Ridge Road was a must. I apologize for how
little justice my pictures can do. The scenery is spectacular.
The climbing is relentless, but it is absolutely worthwhile. Sonoma
County has some of the most spectacular quiet roads and scenery
I have ever experienced. I again apologize that my feeble photography
skills do not do this area justice.
