Oakdale version of traffic jam


Leaving Oakdale finally

AbsoluteEndUser says "oh hai"


Lunch stop. TrailJammer takes his hat off to the crowd


Lunch time!


Two hours riding through 101 deg heat and the gang's still fresh as daisies!
(clockwise from left: ScaryHelmet, Pandy, TrailJammer, Mortifer, EvilZ, TripleThreat, 280Squaggler, Kamea, and AbsoluteEndUser)

After lunch in Big Oak Flat, headed into the Sierra foothills.


View from the sweep position


We took a detour off of 120 to check out the Hetch Hetchy dam


But first there was a 'lil business to take care of


Visiting Uncle Sam

Looks like someone's getting a ticket


Hot or not?


On the way to Hetch Hetchy dam finally


Gratuitous portrait


Finally, the damn dam! (And Hetch Hetchy reservoir, the source of H2O for L.A.)


View of the dam

Enough of the dam tour, the gang's happy to be getting back on the road


Two bikes, one pump


I think we should turn right


Into the High Sierras (about 9000 feet)


Approaching Tioga Pass


Moar...

Tioga Pass at last (9,943 feet)


Attempt at semi-panoramic shot


More pano shot


EvilZ is inspired by Kungfu Panda (and ScaryHelmet's delicious rice crispies)


Kamea is estimating the amount of force to push ex911 over the edge


Just because

Well hell, I'll have to play the newbie card. I didn't know you liked to keep it nice and tidy with a separate post for pics Some of mine are here at the original rally post. I also posted elevation profiles for my routes.

Hey, how do you write "crossover"? I wanted to write that I didn't know you [crossover]ladies[/crossover] like it nice and tidy, but ended up deleting the ladies part based on civility and newbie status... but now the just looks gratuitous.
