Day 4: Through The Green Door
After the previous stressful 250 mile day the cinnamon coffee never tasted so good.
We said goodbye to our little friend living under the trashcan and hit the road.
After a bit of gravel roads we hopped on the Green Door Trail and wallowed over to Punta San Francisquito. Apparently the local rancher thought the brightly panted door would be better suited in his home because the door isnít there anymore, or thatís the story I heard, but in the West you have not business telling a story if you can't add to it. We did get a taste of prison life in though.
This had obviously been run in a recent Score course and honestly if wasnít an incredibly enjoyable ride all torn up especially in comparison to the first couple days.
And after a quick 90 mile day we were relaxing on the beautiful San Francisquito beach.
This place has seen a ton of change over the last few decades. Originally this was going to be a fly-in Club Med type of an establishment with women hanging from the rafters. After that, with a runway at one edge of the property, surrounded by nothing but desert for a hundred miles, the drug runners decided that it would be an excellent fuel stop. Consequently the Federalies put up shop and since moved out and now it is under new management catering to quite a few dirt bikers and serving up what one San Franciscan we met described as the best fist tacos he has ever had in his life. I agree 100%.
