Sunrise 6:55 am: Jogging "the Dish"

From 1994 to 2000, running "the Dish" (pictured in 2/11 post) was the Dawn Joggers Saturday morning routine (albeit not at dawn!). From our home to the 'backside' of the dish, up the long hill and then another long hill, and back down by Lake Lagunita to home is about six miles. The climbs make it a good workout.

Then Stanford fenced the dish area in and banned dogs. Cassie was still a very spry six-year-old at the time and Aussies need their exercise. So we had to find alternatives to the Dish.

Now that Cassie is 12 and joining us every other day, we're back to jogging the dish on Saturdays. It's the perfect vantage point for viewing the Bay Area on a day such as today after a rainfall. It's was crystal clear with temeratures in the 40s. We could see the snow on Mt. Hamilton as well as the City in the distance.
