Post Rocks on South Grade of Palomar
Just got home after riding through the rain at Palomar, although that shouldn't be a lasting thing. There is however 10 or so baseball sized rocks on the road about half way up so be carefull.

Rain???? I'm heading up there tomorrow morning so I'll double check the weather.

Were the rocks before the big turnout or after? I normally don't run all the way up.

Yeah, it started raining just after we got to the top, tried to wait it out for a couple minuites but it just got worse so we slow rolled back down. I believe the rocks were before the turn out.

No rain today and only 1 rock on the DY going up the hill. Was 100 degrees today so I cut my day short.

Yeah I was feelin' the heat too thats why I headed back home. Only 3 laps up and down for me.....and that was just to the turnout ! Wasn't into it mentally and didn't want to risk a crash.
