Week's End

Down the single-track
Becca and I did a pleasantly-long hike west of Tortugas Mountain this morning, and we only ran into one guy who had left his old Isuzu SUV parked at the base of the road leading to the mountaintop.  Technically, people aren't supposed to drive in this area since the university closed off Geothermal Road, but some scofflaws do it nonetheless.  He was jogging up the road, and he was long gone when we passed the spot again an hour-and-a-half later.
