Solstice on Soledad

To celebrate summer solstice I rode my bike up Mt Soledad.  I rode up the steep way, 823 ft in 1.5 miles. I had rung in the New Year of 2010 with the same ride and I was happy that it seemed easier this time. The views at the top are spectacular and yesterday was indeed a day to worship the sun. June gloom burned off earlier than usual and I had a fantastic day on the bike.

Last night while sleeping at 9060ft (where I've been for a week now) I had some great dreams. All I can tell you about them is that I am glad that Shakespeare said of summer solstice 'whateveris dreamed on this night, will come to pass'. There could very well be a nice silver belt buckle in my near future!
