I had intended to wash the 7 today. But instead, spent the day studying and photographing the varying cloud formations passing in the skies overhead today. Naturally, this was best done from the 7. Started at about 50' above sea level in San Jose, and drove up Nichole Sherzinger road (technically Mount Hamilton road, but that's what I call it) to the Lick observatory (nah... too easy) at 4,200', stopped for a burger at The Junction on the other side, and then turned off 130 onto Mines road into Livermore. Then home. Winter conditions, so had to wear a long-sleeved t-shirt. Bitchen day. :icon_encouragement:

Empty roads and great weather. Hey Morgan - This is not exactly right in your back yard, but close enough for a blat, don't you think?

Looks like a great drive! One of these days I'll take my Birkin north and check out some of the roads you have up there.
Fantastic day today (sunday) here in LA. I just got home from this drive.

The roads in the hills around Castaic Lake and Bouquet reservoir were a joy today.

This was my consolation for having not driving my 7 yet due to record rainfall for March. And February.
