Summer is in full swing. We met at La Canada and climbed up Angeles Crest Highway. It was warm to start and it just got warmer. The first re-group was at Clear Creek at Mile 9. Second was Red Box Mile 14. And the final re-group at the Cosmic Cafe at the Mt. Wilson, Observatory. I counted 29 motorcycles passing us on the way up, and a Ferrari convention. Lots of vehicular traffic on the way up. Not too bad on the way down. I was wiped by the time we got to the top of Mt. Wilson. The humidity was ~75%RH. I was drenched. The descent was fun. I could feel the warm and cool gusts from different canyons, as we blew down the hill. We cooled off at Panera with smoothies and lemonade. The A group took the hot scenic route home from Mt. Wilson. Lower T to Sunland. Whew! Bjoern said it hit 105F on the return trip through the valley.
