Weather plays tricks on my garmin

goto: http://www.mtbguru.com/trip/edit/1158-hains-pt

if you look at the elevation chart it shows a declining elevation. The funny thing is though that I was doing laps at the same spot which is roughly at sea level -- sometimes below if the tide and winds are right. The garmin uses a barometric altimeter which uses air pressure to calculate altitude --- there must have been a front or something moving thought when I did this ride because it thinks I was going downhill. funny.
