June 18, 2011 -- Saturday Morning. I started this morning at 6:30 with breakfast at the hotel.
The weather was nice this morning on the American River Bike path. The path parallels US Highway 50, at the Western Terminus, and this road sign.
It's a beautiful Saturday morning. There are a lot of people bicycling, walking, jogging and picnicking.
Later, I found a quite spot, with a picnic table, a stone’s throw from the river. It was the perfect place to stop for an early lunch.

Onward and upward toward Folsom and the Sierra Mountains.
I bicycled past Folsom prison. You might remember the Johnny Cash song Folsom Prison Blues http://youtu.be/v7gV5C5mB7A
It was quiet, and peaceful, as I pedaled past the prison. However, keep your eyes open for this guy.
Do not let him near your bicycle.
