Mt. Taylor

Eastside Road, June 2, 2013—
SHORT AND STEEP today, out at a new local park, Mt. Taylor. Well, it's not really much of a Mount: we only got up to just short of 400 meters, about 1300 feet. But my new iPhone app tells me it was a ten percent grade overall, and much of the trail cuts across the contours, going straight up the hill. It didn't stop the guy you see here at the top, who rode his trail bike all the way up. About four miles altogether, with stunning views, if you like subdivisions and warehouses… • Taylor Mountain Regional Park, Kawana Terrace, Santa Rosa, Californiadistance.jpg
