After John and I arrived in Folsom, CA late Saturday morning, I opened up Google Maps on my phone and saw that there were trails nearby for running and bicycling--just off of the business park where John's bike race was held. So I laced up my running shoes, watched a few laps of another men's bike race before heading towards the trail. What I had hopped onto was part of a 32 mile stretch of paved multi-use pathway called the American River Bike Trail. It's a pretty impressive trail with many points of interests; I'm glad I had the opportunity to check it out.
Hop Sing Palace, a Chinese restaurant I saw on Google Maps and was recommended by the lady at one of the gift shops we visited. The staff was very friendly, all wearing crisp white shirts. We really liked the cozy, warm interior and old school Chinese restaurant feel...very romantic.
