    Kind of cold on Mt. Dialbo

    Boy, I went up Mt. Diablo on Weds. evening and the day turned kind of nasty! We started up the Northgate around 4:45 - a quick call to the info line confirmed it - 42 degrees and 18 mph winds at the summit! We ended up going a bit past the junction - we did 2,400 feet of climbing, but in the end decided it was just too nasty.

    Here's what it looked like on the way up:

    I think I saw you coming down at the Junction. You had gotten ahead of the woman rider and waited for her and then a car passed you going down... right?

    It was cold but not that bad - we've been spoiled with great weather for early spring.

    Well, there goes the sympathy vote! It was my friends who wanted to turn around, honest!

    We only stopped for a couple of minutes at the junction going up, and met up with a couple of friends who had come up from the south side. Going down, I didn't stop at the junction. It sounds like you saw my friend Mark, who was riding with his wife. She's got the TnT jersey on in the photo; he was wearing a blue jersey (and is partly hidden by the rider in black).
