Cloudy Morning Mountain Drive

My morning commute is about to change and I was feeling all sentimental this morning.    I love this view.    It is breathtaking every day.  I will miss it.

I will not, however, miss snowy/icy/treacherous road conditions on this winding road.   I will not miss going through $1,000 in tires every year.   I will not miss slow-ass tourists lollygagging on the drive.   And, while I respect a bicyclist’s right to the road, I will not miss trying to avoid running them over while just getting where I am going every day.

Fortunately, my new morning commute (coming to this blog soon) will still include this same mountain from a much lower altitude.
