    CA: Mt hamilton rd

    this is a fun road. i live just down the street from where it begins off of alum rock. i remember like a year ago i saw maybe anywhere from 80-100 something subarus driving up alum rock. i assumed they were going up alum rock to mt hamilton. it was a memorable site.... a group of like 30 would go by then a red light then the light would turn green and another 30 or so. i watched this for like 10 min and like 5 lights. it was crazy.

    Mt. Hamilton is an awesome drive. I live right next to quimby, the other road over the mountain. When you saw 80 - 100 cars go by I'm pretty sure you saw all the cars for the Mt. Hamilton meet that is put on by the guys on i-club. I haven't been to it yet, but its supposed to be awesome and is on july 4th I think.

    I've heard of it many times and been wanting to drive up there. How do you get there, coming from San Francisco?
    I might be back in the market for the new STI sedan!

    take either 101S to 680 N then exit alum rock and go east

    or..

    take 280S this turns into 680N then exit alum rock its not easy to miss.
