Took a nice ride for the last day of 2022 to take advantage of the weather that was pretty close to perfect, started out around 63° and stayed between that and the low 70's most of the day. Last hour or so it crept up to 77°, but then on the final 15 mile leg home it dropped like a rock back into the low 60's. Mostly clear blue skies and very light traffic until around 3 PM. Grabbed a couple of scavenger hunt targets while we were out, but @lesblank
posted the Happy New Year target about 45 minutes before I did.
Even the short jaunt I took on I-10 had very few other vehicles, I can't remember ever seeing it this light, especially in the daylight hours:

I didn't have a single oncoming distracted driver drift toward me as we approached for the entire trip, mostly on 2 lane blacktop. I did come across this distracted bicyclist who was typing on his phone as he pedaled. Screen grabs don't do his talents justice.
