Very nice ride on Saturday at one of my typical loops (Cherry Canyon)...until it wasn't.

Visibility below the cloud layer was quite spectacular. On a good day you can see Catalina Island. On this day I could see San Nicolas Island, which is quite a bit further out. I don't recall ever being able to see San Nicolas. I felt good - not fit, but strong and agile. Had a nice chat with a couple of HS-age riders who were bemused by my old rig. It's always good to see young riders out in the dirt.



In the closing part of my ride, I detoured from my usual route, which took me to a drop down to a stream crossing. The line I wanted to take was occupied by a few people and a dog, so I picked an alternate path. Bad choice. One rock stopped my front wheel. A different rock stopped my face. Zero stars. Do not recommend.
