Snow on them thar hills

The rain has left the mountains blanketed with snow and this morning there were cyclists staging in the Von's parking lot. My indecision to ride was wiped away with the guys unracking their bikes from the cars. The sky was clear and the sun bright an optimal break in the storms for a ride. There was no time to waste.

The Inland Inferno Triathlon Club were out in force prepping for the May event Breathless Agony. One fellow, Peter chatted with me. The next storm is a "pineapple express" a warm storm from Hawaii. As the club amassed about a dozen or more, I realized, that I wanted to be behind these guys on the way down. Besides, it was a perfect day for breath taking views and stopping for pictures along the way down.
