Ascent Trip Report

38F when I pulled into the parking lot just before 7am. I wore gloves and a jacket and almost took it off on the way down since I was moving fast to make it up and down and to work on time. I crossed the soccer fields and the disc golf course before finding a chaquiñan that took me up to a saddle and then to the right towards the top. It was over before I knew it. There was a quarry or mine to the east that had some machinery stirring up dust. I went back the way I came and made it in time to figuratively punch the clock.
