|A huge Torrey Yucca just west of Tortugas Mountain|
Although there were a few other crazies out and about this morning I ran into only one mountain biker. I ended up going further than I had planned, but I didn't do any bushwhacking. Although the temperature was 40F when I set off it felt much colder because there was no sun, and a slight breeze added to the chill. You can see from the images here that old Sol never made an appearance, and the forecast for later this afternoon calls for rain. At least I didn't get wet this morning.
