High on the Second Ridge

Ft. Ross Road
June 12, 2005

< < previous | next > >

It took an hour or more to get out there -- up the gently curving road along Austin Creek to Cazadero, then onward over the not-so-gently curving road towards Fort Ross, and finally up an aggressively curving and angular road to a peak on the second ridge, with views of the first ridge to the West -- and in gaps between the hills, the fog banks resting on the Pacific. And would you believe that atop the hill, when we listened for the sound of wind and silence, we heard ... some jackass running his leaf blower.
