First after breakfast ride of 2009

Chris writes (01/03):

After breakfast this morning Bill, Darryl and me rode up to Alice’s where Bill’n I took off to ride for Pescadero, but turned S. on Alpine Road, turning off it for a ‘wendy’ down to the Sheriff’s medium security facility and a county park. There’s a sign, 2.4 miles from the jail facilites (about 2 miles off Alpine) that says ‘Authorized’ only. Well, visitors are ‘authorized’ so we took it.

One lane, poorly paved, but very scenic. It wends its way down through some Redwood groves as you decend a vally, cross a wooden bridge (which is slicker’n snot on a brass doorknob), and then climbs to the Sheriff’s ‘compund’ which includes his medium security facility. Never saw a sole going or coming.
