We left Arata early due to warnings about construction delays on route 299. We had to be in Chico before 4 for the brewery tour at Sierra Nevada.

I dislike packing wet gear. I was able to dry out the gear around 9 miles later over a ...
... that bad. From 3000 feet to 6000 feet, the climbing was gradual. I was under thick tree canopy for most of it. I may have said it before, and I'll say it again. I am loving this canopy. When the canopy does open up, you have majestic vistas of the mountains just full of so many pine trees. I can't remember seeing so many pine trees in my life. The dominant tree here is the white fir (at least I think ...
