    Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Decided to get up at dawn and head above the morning fog and clouds around San Francisco and Marin County. A few pics attached. Had the entire mountain to myself...

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Road trips ... that is what these cars are all about .. Thanks for the photos . Where is these , what road ?

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Beautiful pics.. Love the scenery!

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Thx for great pics. Looks like top of Mt Tam to me....right?

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Sweeeet!!!

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Mt Tamalpais it is.

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Lovely.

    More and bigger please

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    It makes me want to buy a Honda Accord instead of the 06 997S cab im considering... I live in Palm Beach county Florida and all the roads are flat and like a grid. ughhh!

    Great photos and beautiful car..

    Dude, get your priorities straight....if you're a car guy, move to a place w/mtn twisties like SF/LA...don't downscale your car aspirations to fit a straight-line-only place like FL or Chicago.....those fwy on/off ramp "curves" just aren't all that exciting....

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Beautiful pics flash, I'm a bay area guy myself and have never been up to Mt. Tam.. gonna have to check it out! Seeing pics like that makes me wanna jump in mine right now and go. I'm gonna throw my digital cam in the car and head up Hwy 1 sometime this week, I'll post some pics. Awesome ride, life is g-o-o-d

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    It was an awesome drive today. Here's the route for anyone interested. Its basically the road to the top of Mount Tamalpais. FYI a lot of car firms use this road for their commercial video shots as you can get forest, hills, ocean and clounds all in one place.

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    One more from today, slightly bigger. I'll post the high res versions to the renteam gallery tomorrow when I get a bit more time. Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    WoW

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Great pics I love the "above the clouds" pics! Thanks for posting.

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Very nice!!! You can see Sutro Tower in San Francisco poking out of the morning fog in the background! Can't wait to drive a 911 up there someday.

    If you guys do zip around Mt Tam, keep an eye out for road cyclists as we are many on that mountain... Cheers, jmr

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Awesome road and scenery.....also amazing is that one can be back in SF in about 30 mins from top of Mt. Tam.....great place to escape from the office on a slow late Aug weekday PM......

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    You and me both, nothing like riding a bike to the top to realize how high it is!

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    wowowo awesome pics flashman! and that road looks like tonnes of fun to drive on too! all them twisties

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country

    Re: Got up early this morning for a drive in the country
