don't think I recognized the calendar pic, unless it's up on the way to Frazier Park? Hudson Ranch Road ...? idk, wag.

fun stuff, for sure!
Yes, 58 to to Bitterwater to Parkfield is in fact correct. And yes, we did ride Cerro Noroeste to get to 58, but that calendar pic is from another road entirely.

Good guess, but we missed Peachtree this time around.

It was on Foxen Canyon.


Edited to add: On our Monterey Madness ride back in 2012, VFRVern and I were the only attendees so we opted for a very non-traditional route. We passed through the Sierra foothills before crossing the valley to Little Panoche Rd.

We found this guy on Oildale Rd NE of Bakersfield:

Ah... I ran across masses of them on Peach Tree. Almost too many to dodge.

That time of year.

One year it was ground squirrels playing extreme sports on Peachtree. I hit two, and another friend got one that day.
