Really nice photo's of your trip. I think the old school house is pretty cool, not that the rest are bad, they are all good. I just have a soft spot for old schools and such. Lots of us out west have run into the late season snows still hanging around, making us (me) ride alternate routes than what I had planned...on paper!
I've been on parts of the California trail myself and have seen quite a few of those historical markers. I'm glad I can cover ground more quickly than what the pioneers could. Plus I think we enjoy it more than they did! Oofta!
Thanks for sharing your ride pictures.
