Comments
Comments: Awesome day for the ridge. Needed a windbreaker at the top of Lafayette, but other than that, no problems. This was a Thursday and I thought that I would take Greenleaf down and walk the bike path back to avoid the crowds. When I got back to the parking lot after adding on 2 extra miles, the lot was barely full, so I could have avoided the slog.
