Why not backward? 64 miles done different.

There are only so many ways you can try and combine our local roads and come up with something different after 40+ years, but I was determined to try. You can see what I came up with below; start by climbing 84 from Woodside, not Kings or Old LaHonda, and then head north on Skyline, not South. Descend Tunitas instead of climbing it, then south on 1 to Stage, then the more-typical run into Pescadero, up & over Haskins, and return via 84 & West Old LaHonda. I figured it would be challenging, and I had figured correctly, especially going alone (Kevin's still having kidney pain issues).

Warm? Yes, at least until San Gregorio, which was actually fogged in! The run south on Stage was interesting in that you had the sun on one side, fog on the other, a not unpleasant combination, just a bit strange.

I did "goof off" a bit on West Old LaHonda, taking more photos than usual, as seen below-
