View of San Francisco from Twin Peaks

So it has been really really rainy here in SF for the last couple months. Records have been broken. Rivers have flooded. Mud has slid.

All this has put a pretty big cramp in my outdoorsy style. I've been limited to indoor climbing and the occasional run for exercise. With no reason to believe todays weather would be any different, I made plans to run a bunch of errands and do some laundry. By the time I finished everything and realized the sunshine wasn't going to go away, I only had a few hours left before class. So, I grabbed my roadbike, and headed out to Twin Peaks.

It was a nice little ride. My legs and lungs are very out of shape (I can't believe I'm racing in two weeks). The view at the top was wonderful. It was a lovely reminder that despite all the gray clouds and pouring rain, this is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
