A Hot Ride on the Eureka Canyon Loop

June 18, 2017

After a cold, invigorating swim around the wharf with friends, I was ready for a good Sunday ride into the redwoods. The streams of upper Eureka Canyon sounded inviting. I realized the forecast was for 100F temps up there, but with plenty of stream crossings, I figured I'd be fine. But yeah - it took stopping at almost every stream just to get enough water and coolant to make it all work.

mid June is thimbleberry time! This patch was on Valencia School Rd

My last stream stop - on Highland not far before Spanish Ranch

I soaked my head, jersey, arms... and helmet at each stream crossing
