Winter coat like a sack of rocks

Out the door under blue sky. Back before sunset. The days are getting a tad longer. But winter’s not done yet. Heavy rains (and dusting of snow in the mountains) a few days ago. Foothills once black showing some green. Took Specialized Roubaix out Scripps Poway Parkway, up Highway 67 into Ramona and back through Highland Valley Road. The climbs were slow, the descents cautious. Winter coat feels like a sack of rocks. Took a few BlackBerry pictures in the burn area of October’s Wildfires. Notice charred road sign post. Second shot from a farm (in San Diego!) you pass as you pedal west back toward suburbia.
