The next morning, I climb up out of the hidden Yerba Buena campsite to the Henry Coe State Park visitor center above at about 2600 feet. From there, I pass through the entrance gate to "the backcountry" and ride down Manzanita Point Road along the ridge top. Today's destination is a bit beyond the ridge in the background. There will be a steep descent into and out of the gulley between here and there, and a crossing of Coyote Creek, which has mostly dried up at this time of year (September 2, 2006)
