Palomar Mountain Feb. 10, 2009…

Photos courtesy of John Thess of Mother’s Kitchen at the summit of Palomar Mountain. Thanks, John!

Top photo is just over 200 feet from the mountain’s summit. The second photo is what riders will see before they summit. The third photo is what you’d see if you turned left at summit (riders will be turning right). The fourth photo (lowest down) is looking at the summit from parking lot of Mother’s Kitchen. Riders will be coming up South Grade (from the right side). My plan? Cruise down a few hundred feet from summit and run up the road with leaders. I won’t be wearing a Buffalo bills helmet with horns — or carrying a huge American flag  🙂 since we’re not in France.
