Hopefully it will be a beautiful day with no rocks on the highway!

For planning purposes please contact Viv at viv@roadfly.org no later than Friday, April 2nd if you intend to participate in this Tales of the West Adventure! IF POSSIBLE PLEASE DO SO BY MARCH 19TH SO THAT VIVIAN CAN GIVE ROBBER'S A PRELIMINARY HEAD COUNT! Should you have any questions please contact Vivian at this same address.

The Tale Of Robber's Roost. The name of Robber's Roost was borrowed
straight from history and tells quite a tale of the old west. In the
1850's the main route of passage to Forest Hill (the original spelling) and the many other settlements, towns and mines of the Foresthill Divide, traveled a rough wagon trail that followed the north fork of the American River.

Above this trail, near what is now Lake Clementine, rests a mighty
limestone formation originally known as Lime Rock. This towering rock
perched above the wagon trail was used as a lookout " roost" for many a heist. All gold and cash shipments coming off the Foresthill Divide en-route to Auburn and Sacramento had to pass beneath "Robber's Roost". One could position him or herself atop the rock and see the trail for miles. When the wagons approached, it could be determined from this vantage point whether or not the wagon was accompanied by armed guards or a posse. If determined vulnerable, the lookout person would signal down to accomplices with a brightly colored cloth or a mirror to intercept the wagon. Many cash and gold shipments fell prey to Robber's Roost.

Mark loved driving my car in the hills. Sport mode works wonderfully! Lunch was good too.

Is the plan just to drive up to Robber's Roost for brunch and call it a day, or is there more to it than that? Is this more of a social gathering than a "drive the hills" kinda thing?

Just curious. There's a group of us 2002 and CS owners that get together from time to time and drive the hills, but we typically go for a longer drive.

who's to say your group (or whoever is interested) couldn't meet with us and be apart of our ride, have brunch/lunch, and then go on for a further ride. If it was as nice as yesterday, I wouldn't blame you for wanting to continue the ride! The hills are beautiful this time of year. We drove down to see Lake Clementine. The river is flowing over the top of the dam now. We had a great day!
