Up and at em good and early this Sunday

Had a good long loop planned..33 to 166 to Sierra Madre via Bates Canyon to 166 to Foxen Canyon and Home..right around 200ish miles

33 was beautiful as always, but especially so now that the flowers are in full bloom along the sides of the sweeping twisting roads





Perfect temps, beautiful sights, great roads..who could ask for more

The scent of flowers was strong all the way up the mountain, adding to the experience even more

Moving Meditation


The awe inspiring, rugged beauty of Lockwood valley and Pine Mountain area below







Down into Ventucopa

Bug are in season for a bit...I was covered the end of the day...come to find out the little terrors bite, especially discomforting when they fly down inside your shirt and begin to feast while your cruising along! Makes for one of tose quick stops where you are tearing gear off as quick as possible in order to address an issue

Cottonwood Canyon to start...rolling cow country hills with some roughed up concrete





to Foothill Road



Nice Lawn ornament along the way





to Bates Canyon Road



Sierra Madre- 8 Miles 8 Glorious Miles


Just opened not too long ago after the winter released it's grasp..it's a real treat of a road, only been on it twice before and it was going the other way on the Wee Strom Looking forward to hammering the F8 up it







These are the roads dreams are made of


See up there? Yep, that's where we are going


God, I am in Love with this landscape

After 8 great miles of twisting, climbing, rock strewn dirt I make it to Sierra Madre

An outstanding dirt ridge road

Cayuma Valley on one side





Sierra Madre Mountains on the other





Made a left onto S Madre...though the sign said Locked Gate 9 miles, it also said McPhearson Peak 8 miles



Nice view up here and of course great cell phone reception









Found a couple Bench Marks







Feeling good to be up here gettin
a little LOST

Brace yourself for the flower montage










OK..now that we got that out of the way...

The gate was indeed locked after another mile


This area begs me to come back with my pedal bike


Back the other way, for about 20 miles of dirt till we come back down off the mountain to 166 again
