Ho-hum, just another day of drudgery at the
Hwy 36 office. And this continuation of the renowned NorCal
east-wester starts out from the three-DH junction possibly as an
even better ride than the superlative DH6 from Carlotta, as hard
as that is to believe. Itís exceedingly rare to find the
intense, lengthy barrage of Twistiness thatís thrown at you
right off the top, especially when itís combined with excellent
Pavement. Though the road-hugging forest and rugged
close-to-the-road terrain initially impair Engineering, both T&E
mellow out the nearer you get to Red Bluff in the Central
Valley. But Remoteness stays consistently Ė and surprisingly
thereís as yet little development even close to Blufftown. As
for Scenery, thickly forested mountains eventually give way to
more moderately treed and sage-covered foothills before a
combination of open flat and partly treed, rollicking n' rolling
countryside takes you home. The magnificence of the upper
reaches and the wide variety of experience throughout helps keep
Character within striking distance of its Hwy 36 colleague. Itís
just too bad these particular workdays aren't pensionable time.
