    Artichoke Road 3-12-'14

    Nothing exciting. It was just a beautiful, sunny, warm, super clear day. I had to share it.

    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Lot's of garlic and artichokes in that general area, you can smell the garlic for miles. Used to ride those roads when I lived in Salinas. Anytime I see pics in Cali and see places I used to ride, it makes me almost homesick, seriously. Thanks for posting the video Tony!

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    When in Pescadero, have you ever stopped at Duarte's Tavern? They grow their own artichokes for their famous artichoke soup. I think this video is in the area?

    Good eye! This is very close to Pescadero. I have never been to Duarte's but I know where it is. If I get something to eat it is usually at the tacqueria / grocery store / gas station across the street. Great burritos and outstanding salsa.

    The grass is green right now but the rainy season is about over. That means it will all turn brown, errr, golden in a few days to a couple of weeks.

    I was on PEI once upon a long time ago. It was during the summer and I thought it was very nice.

    I heard about Duarte's on Diners, Drive Inns, and Dives. So my wife and I stopped there and had some amazing Cioppino. They have a garden in the back where they grow a lot of produce. Another funky place not far from Pescadero is the San Gregorio General store. They have a website that tells who's playing Live music every weekend. Worth a visit if you're down that way.

    I have been in the San Gregorio General Store. It is interesting and on weekends it can get very crowded. The post office next door is about the size of a closet but then not that many people live in the area.

    That must be a great twisty TW ride there. I like staying just south at Butano State Park. A few miles away where Gazos Creek meets Pacific I once saw grey whales, orcas, porpoises and a sea lion one afternoon gulping herring or some schooling fish. Usually see none of this, just occasional sea elephants and otters, must have been exceptional feeding so close to shore.

    Gazos Creek Road used to be dirt, then they paved it to the spot were you turned to get to Butano. Then they paved another 5 miles. Now at the end of the paved part there is a big gate. It used to be you could go up Gazos and it would circle all the way around and you come back out on Hwy 1 near Ano Nuevo but not any more. To many people going up there not showing respect for private property. Even though it is a county road the county closed it to the public. I called the county guy in charge of stuff like this and asked if he had any plans to open it up. He said no. That there were rave parties up there with lots and lots of people. I pleaded that maybe just open during rainy weather and he laughed and said my request was noted but it was just more trouble to leave it open. Oh, it is open to hikers and bicycles but not horses or anything thing with a motor, which simply means very few people get to go in that area now. Oh well, progress.
