That's too funny. Doesn't look much like Sri Lanka.

Doesn't seem like much, but a morning ride through the Delta was fun.



But she has a nice brontosaurus curve to her eh?


Seems like a big bridge for such a small ditch :). Actually the combined Sacramento and San Joaquin river systems flow beneath that bridge; California's gold (fresh drinking water)


The draw bridge at Rio Vista






A Delta beauty on the way to Walnut Grove.


Cool juxtaposition of concrete and steel.


This is the bat bridge. I'll have to do a post on the story of this bridge some time.

Follow the "trail" down from 140 to reach the upstream side of Slate Creek at the bridge.

There are no trolls, no trools, and no tools. No water, either.

Looking upstream from the bank I've just come down.

Crossing over to the other bank, I found this skeleton of a deer, I guess. Talk about crossing over...

Into the open, looking down river.

And after a little rest along the banks of the old Merced, back to the rig and the road.

Trools are trolls who do nothing but drool and sit, and they spit.
