    That's really creepy! Elvis? Michael Jackson? Marco Pantini?

    Anyway, great photo.

    Thanks! Well, I rode by yesterday and snapped this. The ghostly mystery image is a dead palm tree! Oy.

    Looks like the Phoenix Mountain Preserve? Trail 100?

    If so, I've ridden there a couple of times and LOVE it. You're in the middle of the city and you'd never know it.

    If not, I'm envious regardless where it was.

    Actually, it is just N.W. of the canal at Deems and south of the 303. Not a secret but not well known as there are very few access points to get there. The desert is pristine with lots of granite boulders & hills . Enjoy it soon if you can. The developers will have the place torn up in no time now that the new loop give access to it.

    Where is that at exactly? It's been years since I lived down there, but that sure looks familiar.

    We were heading up from Camp Williams to the top of Glendora Mountain Road. Everyone else had turned around because of the heat (117 on Highway 39 at the kiosk), but I talked Teresa into taking the long way around. The thermometer on my VDO peaked out at 124.

    To be honest, it was a stupid move. That is waaaay too hot, and once you get into the heat stroke regime, it's not enough to just turn around and head back downhill.

    Just for yuks, I turned the camera on myself and this is what I looked like. Completely soaked with perspiration and my face beet red. I honestly don't think I'd do that again.

    you guys are lucky! I have never ridden in that heat. I finished a ride one July when the temps hit 110..... but there was no climbing and it only was above 100 for the last hour or 2

    ^ Yea, I know. It was stupid! The really stupid thing is that I live near the beach and have other options, even on the hottest of days. Oy ... sometimes I wonder about my sanity.

    Caught this riding home last night. With the high ISO and all the grain, it really doesn't capture the beautiful evenings we've been having. Calm, warm, and dry.



    In fact, too dry. If'n we don't get some rain soon, we're gonna be in a world of hurt. Check out this high pressure ridge. I dunno that I've ever seen the likes of that in the winter.

    I refuse to worry about the drought. I'm just going to enjoy the warm, sunny, windless weather.
