Took a fun long drive up Highway 1 in Marin. Came across from the east bay on the Richmond-San Rafael bridge and started the drive on Lucas Valley Ranch Rd. This is the road that the old Lucasfilm property is on, Skywalker sound is still there. The big boulder denotes the beginning of the property all the way to the "ranch". After that it was through Nicasio-Ranch and reservoir, and over to Point Reyes Station and Highway 1 north. I ended up trying out Skaggs Rd heading back into Healdsburg... I don't know that I'd do it again... the first section is extremely narrow and rough road with pot holes and locals that don't like to move over for you. It opens up a bit better, but with the cold damp and questionable roads the speeds were kept in check. Still some pretty views. Next time I'll likely return down Highway 1 for more ocean views. Here are some pics...

Glad to see some Bay area folks coming up this way. We have some really nice roads and scenery.

If you're up for a longer drive take 101 north to Hwy 128 north of Cloverdale (you can actually catch 128/29 in Napa and take it all the way up) and head west to Hwy 1 then back down south. Hwy 128 is a gem especially since they repaved it starting at the Mendocino County line heading west.

The Redwood Region of the PCA is having their One One Fun Run this Thursday (New Years day) if anyone is interested (instead of football). They will start in North Santa Rosa >101 N> 128 W> 1 S.
