    That looks like a great place to ride.

    What kind of temperatures did you have?

    T shirt at the top and jacket on the way home. Went and got a tour of the observatory by the caretaker up there but didn't take any pics.

    Nice! That's some beautiful views from up there. Thanks for sharing those photos with us!
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    Nice views no doubt. Is the Tassajara Buddhist Monastery a converted fire lookout, or built from scratch. Peaceful most of the time I bet. Nice after work ride.

    Great pics! I still think that grey/blue combo is the best looking paint scheme.

    No, the monastery is at the end of the road all the way at the bottom where the tassajara creek is and the hot springs.
    That lookout is the old forest service lookout. They use it for a radio repeater station as all the lookouts now are retired.
    They use satellites now for all fire spotting.
