+19c, almost overcast and light wind at start.

Together with Lucian and his friend Tzvetan, I started from the North
point of the Golden Gate Bride and headed for the steep winding hills on
Highway One.

The bridge was build between 1933 and 1937 and was the longest suspension
bridge in the world by that time. Finishing yesterdays stage I ran across
its 2 miles with a beautiful view down on the S. F. skyline, ships and
surfers !

As you can hopefully see from today?s pictures, the stage had many
changing sceneries: from busy city to suburbs, dense forest, silent
mountain valleys, ocean coast and finally green grass fields near the
finish in Olema !

Also I much enjoyed the friendly company on the scenic run :-)

PS: We had no gprs signal at the finish point, therefore it wasn?t
possible to transmit the finish photo instantly to the web (I used the
back-up camera as usual instead and with Jurgen Ankenbrand to verify).

Probably we won?t have signal tomorrow either, so the next days reports
may be delayed.
