    Top of the hill at Cherry Canyon and top of the hill above Whiting Woods (Verdugo Mtn). Not my favorite places but certainly the most traveled to/upon.

    Okay, my pictures aren't nearly as pretty or eye pleasing as everyone else's, but I like them because of what they represent. I love an early morning ride where it's slightly sunny on top of the mountains but as you drop you go through a cloud layer and it gets cold and moist. For those that know Sullivan this is the fireroad going to the top and the canyon that you drop into is below the clouds.

    You're kidding, right? Great pix! In all my 20+ year riding the SM's I've only seen it like this a few times, and didn't have a camera with me. Love the sunny blue sky's above with that dense fog, looking like it wants to spill out of the bowl!

    Great photographs!

    We get to experience the "sea of clouds/fog" fairly often when riding in and around the San Gabriels. Love it!

    Hey everyone, I'm new here. There is a canal that I like to ride that gives me the opportunity to take some cool photos.






    There are also some small reservoirs.




    Bonus BEES!

    and this:

    on a day like this:

    Socal Pics Thread-2013-05-12.jpg

    There's some significance to this ride that is probably only known to a couple of us . . . the last time we were here, it didn't go so swell. This time was much better, and while this was probably one of, if not the, most technically challenging ride I've been on, it was still a lot of fun. I'm sure there are plenty of folks out there who can clean the Mt. Zion climb . . . but I am not one of them.

    Chantry Flats? i recognize the rocky exposure and dark canopy. Last time i rode there my buddy messed up his elbow in the beginning and had to ride the rest of the trail. I dont think i've cursed at my buddy that many times before that climb out of the valley. I remember it being relentless and mind numbing... You of course have your own story to tell : )

    Yup, started at Chantry and rode Upper Winter Creek up to Mt. Zion and from there I have no idea.

    I don't know about "plenty of people than can clean the Mt. Zion climb." I have been told there are some, but some of those switchbacks are no joke. One of my favorite SoCal rides for certain.

    This is my local riding area (taken with my iPhone):

    As far as I know, the eastern boundary of 2N10 ends at the top of Club View Dr. (Right up the street from Bear Mountain).

    Oh yes, my mistake. I was thinking of 2N02.
