Last Friday I cycled up Mount Diablo. A storm had just coated the summit in white. Vapor rose from the pavement, and ice-coated pines shimmered under the brilliant blue sky. It was magnificent. I took some photos.
Over the weekend Marilisa traveled to Santa Clara to visit her grandparents and some aunts and uncles. It was her first train trip, and her first significant trip in a bicycle trailer. Much excitement for a 4-week-old girl! Take a look at the photos.
The Amgen Tour of California, this year in its second edition, came through Davis today. It was exciting to have a top-flight stage race pass two blocks from our house! There was defending world champion Paolo Bettini, Giro d'Italia winner Ivan Basso, defending world time trial champion Fabian Cancellara, former Armstrong right-hand-man George Hincapie, Australian sprinter Stuart O'Grady, and many other international stars. The peloton flew by in a flash, but I took some photos, and our neighbor Dave took some more.
At 12 days of age Marilisa went on her first hike, a 3.5-mile loop in Cosumnes River Preserve near Sacramento. Later she explored the local park in her bike trailer. Photos are here.
After considerable delay, here are more photos of Marilisa's first week.
