Today was a day with a lot of variety. I think you will definitely see that as the story unfolds. We left Fort Bragg in a thick fog, which continued while we stayed along the coast on highway 1, which was about 19 miles. Here is a typical coastal scene in the fog.

The scenery was typical California brown hills, with a few scrub oak along the way. It also got pretty warm on the climb, which is not my favorite. I personally have enjoyed riding in the coastal fog. Anyway, here is what it looks like in the California hills.
