Guerneville Zodiac - Casini Ranch Campground

Wood Duck - Male

The Sacramento Wheelmen held the annual Guerneville Zodiac trip in spectacular Sonoma County from May 10th thru 13th. While most of the members stayed at the Fern Grove Cottages in Guerneville, I stayed with Eric Saur in his Komfort Trailer at the Casini Ranch Campground in Duncan Mills. Bob Barker also camped in his pick-up camper truck at Casini.

The Guerneville Zodiac blog consists of five entries:

Day 1 - Coleman Valley Road Bike Ride

Day 3 - Dry Creek Valley Bike Ride
BBQ at Fern Grove

The comfy Komfort travel trailer was my home for four nights

Heavy rains on the day we arrived results in pea-soup fog in the early morn, but the rains passed and we had four fabulous clear days for bike riding

The fog dissipates and the sun comes out mid-morning

Looks like steam rising from the river
