It was certainly cold up in the hills today, I saw a sign for a waterfall and at a junction these two pointed me in the right direction

It was sunny here to start with then got a bit cloudy and windier, as I rode further along the 108 the more it looked like I was going to get soaked.
The 1270 was wet for a couple of km from the 108 and again a bit further on but I stayed dry
