halloween tiburon

so i've done this tiburon loop four times now. each time i/we attempt to do it clockwise, and each time i/we fail. we'll take different roads that seem to be correct, only to be spit out in the same place every time.. anyhow, it's a nice little loop for pretending you're on a mountain. you're not. anyway, the highlights of this ride were this family of black-tailed deer and the sunset. 38.1 miles

headlands + backside climb-up

plenty of time spent watching the war of the lizards vs. hawks and staring at the ocean/santa cruz/etc. *shots are of conzelman road after it turns into a one way at the top of hawk hill.*

mount diablo from pleasant hill bart station

on mount diablo, you get what you pay for. you're either climbing-up or bailing-down. there's no "lost elevation" on the way up.. a 3,800 ft. climb to the top is really a 3,800 ft. climb. not true for other mountains in the area.. you're up a little, down a little, up a little down a little, and on and on.

i was shocked at how easy the climb was. we took northgate rd all the way up to the peak. next time i want to check out rock city and southgate. i must say the bailing is magnificent on diablo.. just keeps going and going and you needn't brake on many of the turns. can't wait for next time.. these roads just get better and better as you learn their winding ways.
