Mt Hamilton Time Trial, Rides Again
Been sick with the flu and pneumonia for the last 3 weeks of November... but I was well enough to do a Thanksgiving Day tradition - the final time trial of the "Low Key Hill Climb" series, from San Jose up to the top of Mt. Hamilton and Lick Observatory.Our adventure went well! http://www.cabrillo.edu/~rnolthenius/triathlon/LKMtHam14/index.html Got in 42 miles and 5,000 ft of climbing, and only lost 2 minutes off last year's time. Gimme an inhaler and I'm good to go, I guess.
I'm the astronomy program chair at Cabrillo College near Santa Cruz, CA. An astronomy researcher for 30 years, an avid astrophotographer, nature photographer, and triathlete for just as long. I am also a trader in equities. I find a deep need to find, appreciate, and celebrate beauty in all its forms, and to understand myself and the World, and to share that understanding with my students and friends.
