Saturdays ride!

Well I didn't get to finish Mt Falcon earlier this week so I went with a buddy of mine today and made it. The Presidential house was interesting and the view up there were spectacular. Glad I went back!

Spectacular! Congrats on a great ride. Looks like you were on single-track. How did the presidents get up there?

There is another way up to that location that is road and then double track. The interesting part about this house was that is was truly never completed. In the picture of the history banner I took you can read about how it was started but never really a Presidential deal. The guy who did it had a house on a ridge just across from this and his was hit by lightning and burnt down. after that he moved to San Fran,CA and the project just stopped right there.
