While standing over the printer as it printed the maps for tomorrow's run, I noticed the text towards the upper right "San Andreas Rift". Indeed one of the delights of this route is running several miles (more for the medium run) right along one of the Earth's most massive features, the 1,300km long San Andreas Fault. The forecast could hardly be more ideal with temps in the 50s and clear. See you there, 8:15am tomorrow.
