LOL no idea you were filming! I wish I was fast, it actually looks faster on that video than what I remember when we were on the road. Got up there in just over 70 minutes, which is pretty good for me, now (I'm reaching the old age of FORTY really quick!). But yeah, had just enough light at the summit to get some crappy, grainy photos. Thanks to everyone else who posted since then, redeeming my crappy stuff. I actually don't think it looks that terrible up there. Apart from the manzanita and some trees, come next spring, things will probably look pretty good. Sunday I did a ride through Livermore, and it was actually hard to see the difference. That side always seems to look darker.
