JB and Rick are both out of town, so just me today and I took my time getting started. After a week of insanely hot weather, this morning was chilly and windy; I figured it would warm up soon enough though.
Dudley Driveby: 8:16am at the Froat Field.
My original plan was to go down SGR and come back up but since it was so windy down below, I decided to summit. That's when I saw this...
Oddball Sighting: A solo guy on a tandem. I didn't ask why, and I didn't make any jokes about losing his stoker, I just asked if I could take his photo.
Amazing, but why?
From Muir Picnic Area, about a mile from the Top.
Then I stopped to investigate the area of Rick's Wreck. This is looking down at Biff Point from above, as you'd see it while descending. There's a sort of parking lot for park maintenance vehicles just off to the right there around the bend.
