It's been cold ever since the snow on Monday, but since then we've had quite a bit of rain, so I was hoping there'd still be some snow up there.
Saw about 5 guys riding down, and about 7 joggers coming down. More weekend athletes than vehicles. We all acknowledged our respective nuttiness being out there in this weather.
So mostly drizzle up to Junction. The Summit Road got really windy and the rain got heavier. First started to see a little snow in the ditches below Juniper. Got up to Muir and was hoping for a good snow photo op, but there was nothing. Rode another mile to get this shot and decided I'd had enough.
Cold, wind, rain, lonely, snow.

OK, way OT... found this REALLY funky orange on my tree Monday. Did a little research and found that navel oranges are all clones of a single Brazilian freak mutation that had a "semi-undeveloped Siamese twin" and every once in a while the twin pokes his head out... several photos on the web, but this one is the kewlest.
