It was a fun blast through the mountains.

Avoiding wildlife...

Wildlife of all types. At one point an entire herd of squirels spread out over a large field began sprinting towards and across the road. It was very bizarre as there was at least 30 squirrels. I missed them all, even though I didn't try.

Highway to Hollister.

We made it to the Santa Cruz Monterey Bay KOA just after sunset. Of course, they were full. A worker there gave us a few suggestions for camping, but said anything nearby would be full. It was to early in the trip to start settling for motels, so we continued on. We hoped to find camping, but never did. I really wanted to ride through the redwoods and Skyline Boulevard in the daylight. Maybe next time. At least it was no longer hot. We finally settled for a decent Super 8 off the freeway in San Mateo. It was almost 1AM.
