Sun, Clouds, Earth

It's taken me over 4 months to get around to riding up the mountain this year.
I intended to forgo pictures, but couldn't help myself.
This morning was stellar.
I rode 50 miles with Mt Diablo at the end.

Looking SE toward Pleasanton

Looking west toward Lafayette and San Francisco beyond.

I was wondering why there were so many Subarus and Priuses passing me on the way up.

And the irony wasn't lost on me...
How many vehicles burning how much fuel climbed this mountain to worship on Earth Day?

And these leftists are thorough. They even drive to the left. I nearly had the opportunity to meet one head on, and a helicopter pilot, and some nurses, and doctors, and possibly even a surgeon. I was happy to leave them to their - uh - whatever it is they do on top of a mountain on Earth Day.

God must look down through His clouds at His beautiful green earth and shake His head with disappointment. Such intelligent humans, and they cluster on a mountain named Diablo, and worship dirt.
