Photos from Back Roads, USA - Part 2 of 3

This post is a continuation of my previous post, "Photos from Back Roads, USA Part 1." It is the second of three sets of photos that I took on that trip. A brief description of the trip and the first set of photos can be found on "Photos from Back Roads Part 1". All photos are in chronological order. This part begins in northern California on the day that we met my wife Lillian at the San Francisco Airport and it includes all of the photos I took until seeing her off at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix several days later. The detailed story of the trip appears in my book, “Motorcycling Stories – Adventure Touring from the Northwest Territories to the Yucatan Peninsula,” along with 12 other stories of trips That I took between 1977 and 2001.
