Sentinel Power Plant, 11-23-2012

Today's ride: 26 miles, Dillon Rd. Loop, .
I had a very interesting meet-up and chat with John this morning. He is an ex-racing cyclist from northern Ireland who has raced in Europe and the U.S. He was very helpful in making suggestions for me in my pursuit of acquiring a mountain bike. Thanks John.
End of the pavement on West Garnet Rd.  This road spur has been resurfaced.  It would be so nice as a cycling loop if the road was paved all the way to the Whitewater Cut Off, which is probably less than a mile away.  I used a break in the fencing to access the Hwy 62 on-ramp and I rode 62 north to Dillon Rd.

Clear, Cool, Palm Canyon, 11-10-2012
