Well, I am back visiting my mom in the Bay Area again, and I did my ‘getting up insanely early to miss the Los Angeles and Bay Area traffic thing’ again. I just have a few pictures I took, as the sun came up over the mountains North of LA.
I have always wondered about the actual, technical difference between clouds and fog. Is fog just low clouds? And if you find fog in a mountain pass, is it fog, because it is at ground level to you, or is it clouds, because it is far above sea level? I passed this fog bank/altitude-challenged cloud bit of fluffy stuff near the pass at the top of the mountain, and it was hovering midway between the top of the mountains and the lake in the valley floor. This just makes it more confusing.
Then I took a couple of quick photos of the sun coming up from the rest area in the pass, before descending and doing the long, lengthwise drive up the Central Valley of California once again.
Now I have one more question for you. What do you want to see while I am here? I mean, this is an interactive blog. A partnership, if you will. So if you like the flower and dog and sunset and city view pictures I usually end up taking, that’s fine. But if there is something else you want to see or know about the Bay Area, I might just try to oblige you.
