Riding the Geysers

2006-11-19 00:52:24.557642+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Today's bike ride was a loop up around the area known as "The Geysers" in northern Sonoma. Yes, there are geysers there, no, they're not accessible to the public. Did see a couple of geothermal power plants, though. I forgot my camera, so you'll have to take my word for it (unless you're Dori & Tom, then you live in the middle of it), but it's beautiful up there this time of year. The vineyards are all in different states, so looking down from the mountains there's a patchwork of reds, yellows and greens, and the cloud formations were spectacular (probably helped by the fact that I'm sure there's a general upwelling over the area, 'cause there's a lot of energy being released from the earth as steam).

It's gorgeous up here this time of year -- glad to hear you got a chance to get out into the middle of it!

And tangentially: the nearness of The Geysers is one of the reasons that this is such a great place to live. It's nice knowing that such a large percentage of our energy here comes from geothermal.
