Ride #10: China Camp State Park - Anthony, Brandon, Debbie, Lark, Oz, Sherwin, Thien
C.A.T.S. is back! And bigger than ever! This President's Day, the gang inducted three more members: Lark, Thien and Brandon! Welcome aboard, guys! (p.s. I don't know why this photo is cropped, but click on it to see the entire photo!)
It wasn't a very long ride at all (about 8 miles) but it was a hilly one. I'm not sure about the others, but these were the types of hills that don't look bad, but they kill me. Just shows how out of shape I am. But hey, it's exercise that I badly needed!
Break time! Thanks for the Clif Bars, Oz!
After we hit a breaking point, some of us split off into smaller groups. Brandon had to head back to work a little early, so he took off. Lark and Thien went on their own excursion to get some sketching done of the pretty terrain. The rest of us headed up into the skinny trails up the hill. It was a bit of a muddy ride...I was trying to be careful at first of not getting dirty, but once I felt the mud splashing on my leg, then I let go and splashed through the puddles freely! Mud is kind of fun!
At one point, Sherwin found a log to pose on! Yay the tradition continues...Oz and Sherwin on a log:

Afterwards, some of us headed over to Manimal's house for some delicious handmade wontons! Thanks guys, they were the perfect ending to a good ride.
