Appetite Seminar Pre-ride
Above: view coming down Repack at dusk.
November 23, 2009: pre-ride for the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Ride, aka Appetite Seminar, around Pine Lake east of Fairfax.
What nice day to go out and bust your hump:
19 miles based on where I parked in Fairfax; a time too demeaning to record. Didn't plan on finishing in the dark in Cascade Canyon.
Second time up PMS Hill this week--two too many:
I call this one the Hill of Screams:
Now 6 or so miles in:
The point of no return: miles of downhill after this:
Wish I'd seen that tree sooner . . . .
Uh oh--I think this is the entrance to Lothlorien:
Where the Pine Mountain Loop hits San Geronimo Ridge:
Shadows are getting long. Didn't plan on being out here when the sun went down.
Finally around to the top of Repack:
Plenty of views on the way down . . . .
Sun going down on Big Rock Ridge, seen from the top of Repack at dusk:
Pretty much dark at the bottom. Ouch!
