Late Afternoon Ride

The weather held off while I got in a late afternoon ride, having missed a beautiful morning.

Clouds hugged the foothills like a grey blanket.

The panoramic view.

The view of Los Angeles high rises from mile marker 9.06. The clarity of the air was exceptional.

The rhythmic cadence of legs, heart and lungs cleared the mind from imposed constraints. The chilling air on the descent helped me focus on my inner core.

On the morning hike, I met Bill the Snake Man who had a recent photo of a 230 pound bear he met by the Big Dalton Dam.

SDSR time 35:15.
