It turned out that the traffic was not too bad, and I was able to get lost in thought and the sights. It is so cool to be able to ride out of my driveway and be a couple of thousand feet off of the valley floor in less than an hour. As I climbed the air cooled and then it felt like someone turned on the air conditioner. I soaked it in, anticipating the heat back down in the valley.

It was a good day.
