Day 2 - April 29 - Coastal Mountains Ridges & Valleys - Northbound
We'll leave the coast line and move on up into the hills. Up some back roads to get to Paso Robles where we'll jump onto Nacimiento Road (G14) which runs along the edges of Fort Hunter Liggett Miltary Reserve along lonely sweeps and light twists. Then we'll run along the incredibly secluded Carmel Valley Rd. back into "civilzation". We'll avoid major freeways by zig-zagging up to Watsonville where we'll cross Hecker Pass (Hwy 152). We'll finish up on some backroads into Los Gatos (probably) - at least as back road as you can get in San Jose.
