Well worth the little side trip.
Thanks for that tip... I've seen photos from that location and wondered how to get up there so next time I'll be sure to check it out!!

You and I have been on the same roads very recently....



however, while underway I'm terrible about stopping to take photos - I see a shot but I'd have to stop to get it and depending on the ride I might stop but I hate messing with the continuity or flow of a ride, every single time I get home I wish I had taken more pictures.....

and yes, you have a wonderful eye for beauty and even more rare is you posses the ability to capture it in a way that others dont see. It takes most people the course of their natural lives to look through the viewfinder and be able to create art - it appears you've already arrived there.

Amazing photos of killer roads! Good to see a large turnout for GaryJ's memorial; I didn't know him, but I learned a lot through his posts on BARF.

Thank you for your kind praise. Everyone rides their own ride for their own reasons... many folks that I ride with are surprised to see what they missed along the way but I'm glad to take the time to see it and share it with them and others... I really enjoy it!

It was a beautiful memorial... Gary had wanted his ashes scattered in the hills that he loved to ride so much... so his wife, Jill, had small green vials each with a bit of his ashes... we were each asked to take a couple and help honor Gary's wish... so a few of the photos in the Santa Cruz Mtns. were spots that I stopped in his honor... he was a really great human being and would be your friend from the get go...

Fantastic pics!

The balloon release made me kinda sad. Gary was one of my race school instructors with the AFM in the late 90's, and he was always nice enough to keep tabs on me over the six years that I raced. He was a great guy, and will be missed.

Nice report, I always loved riding the Santa Cruz Mts. and up and down Hwy 1 and of course a trip on the Highline to Alice's Restaurant...
