March 19--Head East

It was shaping up to be a beautiful day so we decided to have some soup and take a road trip eastward toward the Sierras. We live at the edge of the urban boundary, so we can drive for ten minutes and be out in the country.

It was a lovely day. Everything is green and blooming, and all the creeks and streams are full.

the old Ione Road

The remains of the old road and a bridge.

We drove up to where there was snow and hiked around in it a bit. It was warm--about 50 degrees up there, but it still looks like winter.


On the way down we stopped at an old stage stop, Cooks Station, and had a couple of delicious hamburgers.

It was a great day to be out and about.
