Cool this morning.
Wildlife Encounter: two deer at that estate across from the old nursery.
Hooked up with JB at the Gate. Passed a few guys int he first couple miles.
Some guys at the Junction wearing fraternity shirts were asking about camping and fire pits. Said they had some kind of ritual that required fire... I made a joke about sacrificing a goat. Then remembered that with the Challenge tomorrow there wouldn't be camping anywhere on the Mountain tonight.
JB went home and I rode up to Junction. Looked like the cloud layer was at about 3,000 feet and I wanted to pierce.
Lots of riders but not a lot of serious guys... I guess they were resting for tomorrow.
Clouds at Juniper!
