I've been lazy about taking photos (or a camera), but snapped a few shots on a trip last weekend from San Francisco to Point Mugu.  

Friday: 70s and Sunny along the PCH on Friday. Couldn't have been nicer.

CA154 rest area and sun set on the mountains.

Sunday: Inland route - another warm, sunny day.

One of the few aircraft you can photograph on Point Mugu.

Southern end of CA 33 climbs from the coast to over 5000ft and is incredibly fun.

Fall colors at altitude turn to desert.

A short break at a historic market turned into over an hour at the museum in Taft.  A volunteer said he was 87, gave up riding 2 years ago, and really missed it.  Used to race a Matchless and many other bikes.  Really nice guy.

I burned a lot of valuable daylight at the museum on the first day back to standard time, so made the most of 33's emptiness to make time, followed by a fun run across 198 from Coalinga, then the inevitable slab.

Looks like a great run. I've been threatening to go for a ride North. I've been afraid of the gloomy/misty mornings but you sure didn't have any trouble.

Those aren't "gloomy/misty mornings"! They are "magical and haunting rides through mysterious landscape"  Lol

It has been fairly warm and sunny up here in SF.  The only fog I've seen in the past few weeks was in Malibu last weekend.  Of course we did have rain 10 days ago.
