Leaf Report: there are leaves!

Just a late afternoon stroll in the neighborhood... weather: overcast, 0% change of rain. Perfect!

near Sam's Gap





I26 retaining wall











lousy pic, but it shows how steep the road is. Great for coasting













wait, it wasn't supposed to rain



Spivey Gap



a little bit earlier I talked to a local guy about all kinds of hiking trails and back-roads in the area. There is one trial I'd like to do, and apparently this road leads get me closest to the trail...



found the parking area - and a few more gravel roads. It's raining, I only have about 1.5 hours of daylight left and I have no idea where this road goes.



I love it!



don't ask me









well, off course it's a dead end road, still a few miles of pure beauty - worth the detour.





almost home



and that's the reason I started late:

pooch-time on the AT - still looking good at 13



and some shenanigans in the yard:

Damn it... I knew there was something missing here in California. I don't think Jushua trees shed.
