    In order to stick a fork in this, from my perspective, I rode to Dawson Saddle on Sunday May 18 from Encanto Park. The weather was much cooler compared to my first attempt on Wednesday and that made a huge difference. I also left earlier (6:30am) from Encanto Park, and that worked well because I had a lot of shade up to 9am or so. A few other observations:

    - 39 is clean all that way from Crystal Lake to 2. However, Caltrans still has a presence on 39 in the form of heavy equipment and it seems like they are still doing clean up work during the week. As such, it was easy getting through on a weekend, but until Caltrans is done with the project, if you try to ride through M-F you might get turned around by an active construction zone.

    - Temps really cooled off between Crystal Lake and Dawson saddle. Like 20 degrees cooler at Dawson Saddle. I was tempted to put on arm warmers but wound up not doing so.

    - For a flat lander like myself, the altitude started getting to me at around 6,000 ft. Nothing really bad, but I had to stop every 1 mile or so, for about a minute, to catch my breath.
