Long Outing on a Nice Fall Day

I went with my local group yesterday. It was supposed to be about a 30 mile outing but with had to go with plan B because a powerline was down, blocking one of the roads, and the alternate route was longer. This added about 15 miles. I did not mind as it was a beautiful day for it. We ended up going out and back on Croy road, west of Morgan Hill, where I used to live. The road ends at Uvas Canyon county park. Then it was back downtown for lunch. I did not have any food with me so I thought I’d run out of energy with the extra distance, as I have not been having breakfast lately. I’m still in the middle of my time-restricted eating experiment. But I did fine. I guess this was a good test of “fat adaptation”. I surely did enjoy lunch afterwards though!

First stop, at Chesbro reservoir. It’s really low, we are hoping for rain soon!
