backroads.jpg (144774 bytes)Cool stuff ... back in 1970, my parents bought a Sunset book, "Back Roads of California" that features pen-and-ink drawings of scenic spots off the state's main highways.  One of those spots was a view down Quien Sabe road--here's a comparison of artist Earl Thollander's sketch and current scene.  It's nice to know that some parts of California are still unspoiled--and that's why we ride our bikes through them, right?
