Started today in the mountains, took Hwy 1 to the ocean, then the forest, then across a very neat, but incredibly challenging (up and down a couple small mountains and constant, left-right-left-right very tight turns). Had to wait at one point for a 25 minute construction project. Had just passed a logging truck, the logs they carry are immense. Going through that bit of forest on Hwy 1, there were a lot of residents who had flower gardens and there were also many wildflower fields. I could smell their scents as I rode by.
The road in the background is Hwy 1
very, very long hill with many stops
