Raven Sunrise, 10-24-2013

 Raven in the morning light, facing eastward off of Cerritos between Vista Chino and Tachevah.
Looking down-valley from the parking lot of Tahquitz Canyon Visitors' Center.  The air down-valley was not pretty this morning.  There was a strong west-wind blowing down valley with much moisture in the air.  It looked like the moisture may have been mixed with dust, so I stayed in Palm Springs.  Today's ride, Palm Springs Loop: 17 miles, http://connect.garmin.com/activity/394910695 .
