First off a huge thanks to Kent for giving me a dry spot to sleep and filling me with grub and beer. I definitely needed that morale booster.

Since I was so far behind schedule I took highway 1 into mission instead of 99 through lilooet (an amazing technical road) but I had forgotten what wonderful views were to be had from that drive. Sadly I got another full day of rain and rolled into town looking like a drowned rat. Nothing a few beers couldn't fix though and we swapped bike tales, tweaked my route through northern California, and even fixed the burnt out fuse that was the culprit of my heated gear failure.

This morning setting off I was dry, warm and in high spirits. A relatively painless border crossing later and I was off to Diablo lake. Highway 20 is a great ride, lots of scenery and some twisty bits, , but runs through too many small towns to really speed much. Views of the lake were breathtaking..
