beginning the climb out of the river valley from cazadero
lots of steep climbing to reach the ridge
out of the woods, ribbon road and 360 degree views
cruising on up
always wonder about the story of the folks who left places like these.
turning onto hauser
back up and onto the top of meyers grade
in 2 miles this fellow drops from 1500-2000 feet to the floor of russian gulch on hwy 1
like the peak of a rollercoaster
the bottom of russian gulch (too fun to stop that descent and take a photo of the gulch, even if wonderfully beautiful)
back down 1 to 116, which meanders back to guerneville.
