Going to Mt Palomar Today

Soon as the kids wake up we're headed up to Mt Palomar to play in the snow. This will be the first time I've been there w/o a bike in a while.

I'm back on dayshift now so after the weather improves I'm up for some rides. I like to go over the mountains to the desert for a couple of hundred miles.

Cheers,
Jerry

Here are some photos. There was about a foot of snow and it was 25 deg F. Kids had a blast. Good thing we went early because on the way down the road was starting to be plugged with 2WD bozos who ignored the signes and were stuck. I stopped and tried to help the first couple but they were pretty much just over their head on the steep upper slope. In my heavy SUV with 4WD and agressive oversize tires we had no problems going wherever we wanted.

See you guys when the roads clear,
Jerry

Sometimes I really miss the snow. Not the cold, but definitely the snow.

Don't you have chains for your bike? Geezzz.

So Cal weather is the best aint it?
Ride Palomar mountain one weekend, play in the snow on the same mountain the next weekend and it will usually be clear to ride the mountain again the following weekend.

Maybe I'll get up there next Sunday???
