Missed the SoCal Drive...but did my own NorCal drive!!!!


Recommended Posts

On my trip up north for a family event, I ended up pulling off the 5 freeway just south of Livermore, actually in Patterson. Looking for some photo locations, I stumbled upon this AMAZING 2 hour excursion....WOW...56 miles of nothing but sweepers, hairpins and amazing scenic country. I couldnt believe it was RIGHT NEXT to the 5 freeway! Its Del Puerto Canyon Road then to Mines Road...I even ran into a Triumph Club on a drive and a stray cow....Only downside was the bicyclists on Mines Road...they thought the owned the road...It actually is ONE LANE in 2 directions and the bikes were in the middle of the road, oncoming...I was nearly hit head on a few times...Other than that...maybe the best section of road I have ever driven! What a gem! I almost turned around and went back the other direction!!!!

Welcome to NorCal. We just did that drive in the 02 for the Shamrock Rally. I'm in Livermore. Still up here?
