Looking back down toward the canyon across to Willow Ridge from Manzanita Point Road, about 1100 feet above China Hole

My energy is high this morning and I quickly climb the 3/4 mile up to Pacheco Ridge in about 15 minutes, without a warm-up
I'm not sure where this burst of late-morning energy has come from; I guess I'm just excited about the trip. I have to keep telling myself to slow down and not use up all my reserves too early in the day.
