This MTB thing is HARD II (photos)

Ok, the promised photos...

First the panorama. From the top of Mori point. On your right you're looking S-SW and on your left is N-NE.
That's me in the middle I don't know who that is on the left. I don't think he jumped or anything.


Still from the same spot. See that dark spot -outcrop?- just left of center?
I rode on farther down about to that spot. And back up again! Imagine..


Two shots of Mori Point from the world-famous Pacifica Municipal Pier.
It used to double as a sewage outfall. yeah, that's fish I'd want to eat. The sewage has moved on down farther south.
Anyway, the pier is about 1 and a half from the Point.
One shot shows it closer up and the other farther back. Duh.
I was right on top of that sucker. You can see the pier -barely- from the top of the point in the panorama
Farther south is Pedro Point... the end of town. I end up there most Saturdays. Well, I used to; my world has kind of expanded with the LeMond



As you can see, there's a lot left to explore just on this point alone. Yeah, I'll be going back

Wow! Beautiful scenery. I'm really getting jealous about all these great places you ride.
Makes me wish my parents had stayed in CA instead of moving back to Ohio.......

yes, this can be a stunningly beautiful place to live.
Even when it's foggy, if you're of a mind, it's still beautiful.
I think so, anyway... that's why i've lived here for about 50 years.

But every so often -especially as in 1989- you get reminded of WHY it's so beautiful.
That's not a whole lot of fun. But we forget quickly around here. We have to.

I only lived there for 1 year and don't remember a thing about it. That's what happens when you're only two years old

If the photo doesn't contain blood and bone fragments, it's not an authentic MTB photo.

Nice pictures otherwise.

That sort of picture is taken when you get home.
