The heat, plus the lack of sleep (due to the nights being too warm) made me groggy. I stopped a number of times to try and stay awake. After a brief stop in Sacramento to check in with my sister, I got up into the foothills, and went down a road I discovered a while ago that leads to a relatively quiet and shady place overlooking the railroad tracks. While it wasn't exactly cool, it was cooler than it had been. There, I opened the windows and the side door while parked in the shade, and napped for a little while before getting back on the road.
Train traffic was light, but I did snap this shot of a train grinding its way up "The Hill" as they call it.
I got most of the things done I set out to do while in the Bay Area for this short visit. The things that didn't get done were some optional things that would have been nice but not critical.
Now I'm home until we leave for Utah, except for the two days coming up surrounding my mother's memorial event.
