Ugh - Grizzly peak this morning

...was like the middle of winter. Fog (more like rain in parts), slick roads, windy, low visibility. I was very glad to get down from the ridge today.

Just sayin'.

While we were driving out of the area, it looked pretty soupey from Hwy 24. Davis was a good call for today. Sorry.

Soupey --- and wet. Think I scored a couple of rare Bay Area HTFU points for that though.

Looks like you made a great call.

But after riding through the soup, Diablo was in rare perfection. Went all the way to the tip top for the first time. Temp was 85, skies super clear, and the air was better than it has been for ages.

One thing about Grizzly this morning that was cool was watching riders disappear into the fog ahead of me.
