I believe that campground is called Gold Bluffs Beach for the amount of gold that came down off the bluffs and collected on the beach. I was just there a couple of weeks ago and woke up to a seven point elk just outside the camper.

HA! I told you years back you would end up on a GS.
Did you trade the R in?

Wicked

it was a great time riding with you fools!
I've always been a solo rider, with no adventure buddys in chicago... I can ride with you guys anytime, and might have to just move out west... Even though you fuck around for hours in the morning till your hair is perfect and there's no food left.... . your riding skills and collctive humor make it ok though...



After saying bye to my new friends I set out at sunset , blasted up i5, got off on 20 , the down 16, scavenged for firewood, then camped at cache creek cg.
Riding the twisties on 16 at night was fun, the be has a great headlight...
It was a brisk 27 degrees this morning with frost on everything, I didn't use my rainfly for a better view last night.
I'm at a diner and just had amazing biscuits and gravy, almost as hood as the burritos yesterday!
I'm going to head up 29 and take some dotted line toads towards the coast, dialing it way back off road since I'm loaded and solo...

Sorry no pics, posting from my phone.

Great pics. I'm in for the rest

Chi, I'm glad you got to meet the great people at A&S. They've always taken good care of me.

I've also camped in Prairie Creek, but I stayed in land for camping. Next time, I'll have to take that road down to Gold Bluffs Beach. Looked awesome.

Okay - but when you can get a photo of those dotted line toads you are taking with you to the beach, I wanna see 'em.
