Out the Door Early
Having learned our lesson yesterday, we were out the door early this morning to do the Allison Ranch Loop, a 30 mile, 2645 feet elevation gain. No hanky panky, no dawdling -- we were determined to take advantage of the morning's cool temperatures. As it turned out, a lot of today's ride was shaded by trees. Nice.
The Boyfriend figured out an alternative route that took us into downtown Grass Valley where we had breakfast at this old fashioned diner.
Empire Mine State Historic Park. We explored the mine and contemplated the hard life of a miner. I didn't know that miners came from Cornwall, England and brought technology with them, too.
