Reflections and sightings from [almost] daily jogging at dawn

Sunrise 6:35 am: Cheery cat, cheery purple

Spectacular morning for tackling "reverse Dish," an alternative hill run for the Dawn Joggers to the overly muddy Arastradero usual Friday outing. A black cat, perched on a post - the better to spy its prey - greeted them as they set out. As the sun came up, its rays filtered through the scattered clouds, creating a "God sky." Like yesterday, it was a bit muggy, just short of "earthquake weather," alluded to frequently in the past week as the Bay Area approaches the 100-year anniversary of the 1906 earthquake and fire on April 18. The San Andreas fault line was quite visible, looking westward, as the DJs descended down the "back side" of the Dish toward Alpine Road. Also visible, and in amazing abundance, was blanket after blanket of tiny purple wildflowers.
