    Not a lot planned today. There is another of the huge "drive through" trees we want to see and then we will ride close to, but not into San Francisco.

    No mucho planeado hoy. Hay otro de los grandes árboles a través de los árboles que queremos ver y luego vamos a montar cerca, pero no en San Francisco.

    They are still cutting smaller Redwoods, I don't know how the rules are, assuming there are rules, for not cutting anymore of the larger, older trees.

    Todavía cortan Redwoods más pequeñas, no sé cómo son las reglas, asumiendo que hay reglas, para no cortar más de los árboles más grandes, más viejos.

    I talked with a little old lady from California about earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes. Very nice lady!

    Hablé con una anciana de California sobre terremotos, huracanes y tornados. ¡Señora muy agradable!

    Talked with these fellows from British Columbia, Canada. They were interested in how I liked the African Twin. They were riding KTM 1290 and 1090, plus the other fellow was on a Ducati 1200 Adventure type moto.

    We stopped for lunch a while later. Lunch here normally cost three to four times what we pay in Mexico!

    Nos detuvimos para almorzar un rato más tarde. El almuerzo aquí normalmente cuesta tres o cuatro veces lo que pagamos en México!

    Then we went through wine country. At times you could smell the grapes as we passed by at 70MPH plus.

    Luego fuimos a través del país del vino. A veces se podía oler las uvas ya que pasamos por 70 MPH plus.

    Then we arrived to our hotel.

    Luego llegamos a nuestro hotel.

    There was a Taco Bell connecting with our hotel parking lot, so we walked over for dinner. Modesta was not impressed! hahaha

    Había un Taco Bell conectarse con nuestro aparcamiento del hotel, así que nos fuimos a cenar. Modesta no estaba impresionado! jajaja
