    Damn, I hate California (with pics, part 1) ...

    So I was out in the LA area a couple weeks ago to visit family, go to Coachella Valley Music Festival, Joshua Tree and do some riding. Here's a few pics that clearly illustrate the stereotypical Los Angeles experience...

    First of all, I don't know how anyone can live in a place with weather like this...




    The smog is dreadful and you can bearly breathe...




    It never rains here...






    There are always weirdos hanging around...




    It's so crowded, congested, and traffic sucks...




    Two paths divereged on a hill, and I -- I took the one more traveled by...




    And parking is a beeotch...



    I really don't understand how millions of people can stand it.

    Stay tuned to this channel for upcoming Burkhart's/Devil's Punchbowl pics...

    The pic of the "parked car" look like it had some bullet holes in it. I wonder if they happened after the car was ditched or before...

    It's a singletrack that parallels Mulholland between Sullivan and Reseda. On my Topo map it's called Farmer Fire Rd.

    Yeah, I parked at the top of Mulholland, rode down Sullivan's Canyon to the wash, around the secret singletrack to the stars and through the Riviera neighborhood to Sunset, over to Capri, up to the boy scout camp, hit the singletrack up from there, I skipped the last two singletrack sections as it was fairly obvious that the trail was more fun the other direction and stuck with the fireroad back to Mulholland, piddled around up there a bit (car section) and rode back up Mulholland to the car.

    There you go . . . .

    . . . .destroying all my preconceived notions. Now, if you could only convince your fellow Californians how wonderful the place is so they'll stop moving to Colorado, driving up property values and clogging up our singletrack!
    All other things are rarely equal . . .

    overlooking the beach from Overlook Trail in Sycamore in Ventura Co.?

    could be anywhere, I know, but it looks familiar.

    I saw the name of the photo in hte address and answered my own question! ;-)

    Not bad since I haven't been on that piece of trail in 4 years though!
