Work kept me later than I liked, but at least got to do Mesa Grande from Santa Ysabal out and back. It is a gorgeous road--besides the dead rattlers and the enormous living spider (a tarantula?). And around 6 pm the weather and light was perfect. I see you were nearby a few hours earlier.

Thanks for the warning about the wind; I never even thought to check it.

Do I need to be worried about rattlers when riding? I flew by the first one downhill; it almost gave me a heart attack until I looped back and saw it was dead.
