I was running in Balboa Park last week and saw this tree that had fallen. The ground had become so wet that the tree came down, root ball and all. Below is my first video shot with the iPod Nano.
But even in a wetter year, rain is going to be much more unusual here. Here are a couple photos that capture the difference between running and riding in Seattle vs. San Diego. I went for a ride with Brian, Cherie and Jim a couple of days before I headed down. I snapped these photos on a very shaded switchback path in Issaquah.
And a couple of similar shots from my Seaport Village run this week.
