Except that location looks like Stinson beach, not Mt.Tam parking lot.

Not sure what you're referring to regarding parking lot.
This is from Ridgecrest Boulevard on Mt. Tam, looking down about 2,000' to Stinson Beach and Bolinas Lagoon.

Ridgecrest Blvd. is the road numerous auto commercials are filmed on.

I was with my wife so I wasn't pressing it at all.

I've mentioned before the effing Stabilitrak coming on even in gentle downhill corners. Why can't they fix this? Here, lets turn off your power for three seconds.

I've done the trip a couple of times. I don't remember the exact numbers but I think I started with a full charge. Got nervous at the top of the ridge with 36 left and had 50 when I got back home. I live about a mile and a half from the where it begins to climb in Fairfax. I always drive in low.

Beautiful location...
Beautiful little buggy...
Not far from our hang gliding take off spot!

True, but that's so not me!
Can you say "vertigo"?
