And of course, you can't visit the redwoods without some sort of touristy redwood attraction.

Re: Top o the World, Ma. A Pashnit Moto Tour.

Time to head home. I decided to stop by Point Arena to see if I could capture the lighthouse without the fog.

V2.0 Always take two.

You can't help but marvel at the California Pacific Coastline, it's such a beautiful stretch of highway. I can stare into a photo like this for days.

Re: Top o the World, Ma. A Pashnit Moto Tour.

Been awhile since I'd photographed Stewarts Point Rd.

Worth checking out once more.

The western portion can be quite goaty.

Up and over several low ranges away from the coast.

Re: Top o the World, Ma. A Pashnit Moto Tour.

So why is Skaggs Spring-Stewarts Point Rd so famous in local riding circles?

A marvelous work of engineering, it was a fitting end to another fantastic Pashnit Tour of the NorCal Moto Paradise.

Re: Top o the World, Ma. A Pashnit Moto Tour.

Special thanks to our riders from Tim & I.

L to R: David, Bruce, Craig, Tim, Claudia, David
Front: Tim, Jeff, Mark, Siram & John who seems to have a problem with his nose.

Great times, days of laughs, kicking tires, swappin' stories, telling lies, and immersing oneself in a world where all that exists is the motorcycle, the road, and a passion for riding.

Top of the World.

Absolutely awesome! I love the way you photograph that ride. Very well done!
