On my way from Northern CA to OR.  I didn’t take many photos this day, just a few.

I don’t remember exactly where I was when I took this photo, somewhere in Northern California getting close to the Oregon Border.  I remember it went from hot to nice and cool riding through here with the shade from the trees.

Another nice view of the Pacific Ocean along Highway 101 in Oregon.  (I really should keep notes of exactly where I take my photos!).

This was taken in Coos Bay, Oregon just South of North Bend, Oregon.  It’s a ship from China taking on a load of wood chips.

I was told me these wood chips were being taken to China to be turned in to paper.

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.  It was an adventure riding over it on my motorcycle.  It was so windy I couldn’t hold a straight line.  I must say it was a little nerve racking to say the least!

This was taken on the North side of the bridge on the West side looking down.  By the time I got up here, I was only able to get a glimpse of the bridge for a few seconds due to the clouds/fog.  It was very windy day.

It was a pretty nice day here in San Francisco.  Too bad the bridge got fogged in when I went up the hill to try and get a photo looking down.

A beautiful day for a ride in Southern California.

The above photos were taken in Morro Bay, CA on my latest ride.  The home of “Morro Rock” located just offshore.   According to Wikipedia, it’s a 581-foot “Volcanic Plug”.  I’m not sure what that means exactly, but it sure is impressive.
