Hawthorne Rally 2010 Photo Thread

Let's post 'em up! Some have already made their way onto FB and the group ride thread. Show us what you got!

I mounted my camera on the handlebars and tried to take shots at opportune moments - much more difficult than I'd anticipated.

Riding up Friday following my late departure, another run up Jesus Maria.





Eventually I got to Ebbets Pass.





Riding down, the sky began to look threatening.



Definitely foreboding.



Before I got to the bottom I had to stop and put away the camera and make things as waterproof as possible. It turned into one hell of a storm.

On Saturday we got together with some of the usual suspects to go play on 120 between Lee Vining and Benton.



I followed Steve (Planegray) for a run through the whoops and back towards Lee Vining.









Fun stuff, followed by a great lunch at the Whoa Nellie Deli.

we had the pleasure of Louemc's company and local knowledge. We picked him up in Copperopolis and he joined as far as Walker's BBQ then went home. Sitting at a table with 3 fgt mods and Capt'n Horny would probably be more than most could handle in a day

Anyway for the doubters, this guy is real and very much for real. Thanks for the great roads Lou!!!

I left my camera back in Livermore and I'm down in Arroyo Grande for a few days before GP. Did I mention it's only in the 60's here? God it's like winter compared to Hawthorne or Sonora!

Anyway, I'll post up later.
