A ride up Mt. Hamilton

Since it was my friend Ray’s birthday today, we decided to take a ride up to the top of Mt. Hamilton to see the Lick Observatory. The ride was a blast in my nimble little car and the views at the top were spectacular. Alas, the observatory itself was closed, but the mini-museum and 120’ refractor telescope on the other hill was not, so we went there. The drive back was even more fun – and a lot quicker! There is a smooth stretch of road between Grant Park (about half way up Mt. Hamilton road) and five miles from the summit. You can really zoom through this section!
