Previously I didn't think twice about walking into the roadside bushes to get better angles for photos, but I must have touched poison ivy/oak somewhere recently and got pretty bad rashes in my right elbow area. I've never noticed them before, but once I started paying attention, I see these 3-leaved devil plants everywhere.

The leaves in your photo aren't poison oak, just FYI.

Mines Road 4th of July morning



The Junction I was wondering what the line thru the middle of the photo was.



It's that cable and the sun was directly above making a shadow that looked like a continuous line.



Mask up to place order.

Back to The Junction (did the BARF ride make it up here???)

Ken, good to see you back up on the RZ so quickly. Did you happen to stop and look at the "turn of concern" from your last excursion on Mines Rd?

I think you're right; good that someone's paying attention. If you have blisters for a week like I do, all the plants start to look poisonous.

Correct. That's a blackberry vine. It has stickers on it.
The poison oak leaves are in three's like that, but they don't have any points on them. And they are starting to turn red pretty soon.

Thanks Julian. My left knee is still sore but needed to get back out after crash repairs. I did kind of look for the turn of concern but confidence is a bit low and watching for the gouged asphalt and a chunk of clutch lever wasn't working out. I don't think I will find that magical spot. As I think about it more it's possible due to very good front brakes, I may have grabbed too much brake with my left hand off the bars waving and the front locked and washed out.

That's my latest theory.

A short ride into Mattole Rd. & forest,

I saw a white rabbit with top hat, dive into this tree, I can't fit to follow.

Still more wildflowers available, started back in Feb in Morro Bay.

The goal of this ride was to explore some of the roads at the end of 377 that had gates across them until recently. I was just up there on Friday, feeling the need to do some exploring.

This is where 377 starts, down by Arrowrock Reservoir.


This is the forest service map, showing the region to explore. Anything marked in orange is what I've already ridden. Okay, before and after photos. Everything out to Highway 21 is new today.


The first road was 202B, which I rode to the end, slightly past where the map showed that it ended. As you can see from the condition of the road, they get very little traffic through here.


End of the road.


Actually, somebody on a serious dirt bike could go further. I looked at it and decided it would be a bad idea to try taking an adventure bike through this little "ravine", which would have been coming from left to right getting across. If I didn't make it, I would have a difficult time getting the bike out of there.


After coming back out I headed up 202C a little ways. It was a bit steep and I decided not worth going to the end. Next was 202. I could have gotten past this tree blocking most of the road, but decided, once again, that it was a good point to turn around.


Coming back out all the way to where I first entered, the next plan was to see if 240 and 240B went all the way out. This is where 240 becomes 240B. Not a bad road at all up along the ridge.


After riding a long ways, I came around a corner and saw roads and buildings down below. I was sure it would come out at the main road at this point.


This is where it comes out at Highway 21. I never would have guessed that you could get all the way up into the hills from here.

Seasonal bridges allow river access and short cuts to the local ranches.
