    And here are the landscape shots from today’s hike that are just too pretty not to share:





    By the way, this road was going UP! Would have been a butt burner on the TREK:

    Okay, so no riding for me today or these would have gone into random ride images thread. I went for a hike/walk instead (and let me tell you, after 2 hours my butt is sore! It was no walk in the park…) As some of you who have ridden with me know, I just bought this new camera and so I’m picture crazy at the moment, and I just couldn’t help snapping a few. So, what I’ve done is take shots of the landscape and then I took shots of the wonderful critters who came out to greet me. I saw more animals than I did humans, so I’m sharing. NONE of them that I could get anywhere near (i.e. weren’t behind miles of barbed wire) wanted me petting them, except the beautiful little kitty-kat that I encountered outside a barn. She didn’t want me to stop petting her!

    Shetland Pony:


    Rooster:


    Little Pig that ran as fast as his stubby legs would carry him. I must have looked hungry:


    Sweetest Kitty:


    Goat:


    Domestic Turkey


    Wild Turkeys:


    Deer Family:


    Deer Action Shot:


    Dalmation:

    No, it was Llhagas Road off of Hale. There is a canyon back there that is so lovely. There is a road (Oak Glen maybe?) that leads to three dams, but I'm so geographically-challenged, I couldn't tell ya.

    Ok, know it well. My step son crashed wifey truck on Oak Glen. I used to live on De Witt. Yes Oak Glen goes up to Chesbo Lake and you can also get to Uvas and Calero from there. Uvas canyon park is awesome place and not too far from there. Thats actually many of the roads that I rode on my longest ride to date. In another month all of that will be really green.

    Well, the next time I'm up here I'm determined to sneak off and ride up to the lake. My aunt has begged me not to ride on that road (which is why I went hiking), and I do agree it's narrow. But my Lord, is that area stunning. My pics do not do it justice. By the way, I headed down a road that said No Outlet right near Oak Glen. I wanted to find the end but it just kept going and going. Ring a bell? I know, there are tons of dead end roads up in the canyons, but that one was particularly remote and gorgeous.

    Doesnt ring a bell. Some of those roads are narrow, but there is no traffic on them either. I **** riding over there for that reason, it can be a while before you see a car. I use that part of town as recovery ride area. None of the climbs are very long or steep, its a rolling area at the base of the foothills. Still a country living society. Friendly people for the most part. Its definately a good place to ride around aimlessly.

    Here are a few from San Timoteo Canyon near Calimesa in Riverside County. I had to go out there for some ambient noise monitoring and the site was a few miles off the beaten path. There's nothing like getting paid to go on a little bike ride
