For those of you who'd like to see the pictures of the Celebration of Life that was held to honor Jay, you can click here: http://ourfriendjay.blogspot.com/ . We spent the night in Auburn after the gathering, then drove home over Highway 49 through Nevada City and Downieville the next day. We didn't stop in Nevada City because the Amgen Tour of California bike race started Stage One there. Here are some of our photographs of the trip.
This guy was near the gas station we stopped at in Auburn

Highway 49 bridge across the North Yuba River
I love the quartz running through this granite wall
How clear the water is!!
I love how the water carves out the rock over the ages!
That's Grant on the bridge
This really pretty stuff is called Scotch broom and is horribly invasive
