One thing to be thankful about today was the good visibility. From the top, there were clear views all the way to the ocean and the distant Catalina islands. Also from the top, it was interesting to see all of the deciduous trees in the valley displaying their fall colors. I was surprised to see how many orange, red, and yellow trees, there are in the neighborhoods. From the top of the mountain, it reminded me how much I loved the fall in Asheville N.C. driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
