The sun is shining in La Jolla, CA. (With 101 days running of sunny skies, my friend, Alison, just returned her rain coat with tags still on it to REI. What’s the point of a rain coat here?! ) Alison took me to a look-out spot where I could admire the 360′ view. As I enjoyed the rolling ocean to the west, it was nearly possible to avoid focusing on the (large) mountain range to the east . It turns out that our first day requires quite a bit of climbing to the town of Alpine. Alpine brings thoughts of snow – the stuff I’ve just escaped from!
