Over the Christmas Holiday we took a trip to Southern California to visit some family and do some riding where it was Sunny (Obviously this was before this cold spell down there). We visited my cousins in Pasadena and saw the very cool Gamble House and checked out the floats they were building for the Rose Bowl Parade. While there I was able to sneak a couple rides, made some new friends and hooked up with some older friends. I met up with Doug (AKA Pacman) and his son and they showed me around Chesebro Canyon. Then Al, whom I met up here in NorCal some time ago, along with Jeff and Ron showed me some really cool trails in the San Gabriel Mountains about 5 miles from my cousins house. After that we headed south to visit with my Aunt and checked out the San Diego Wild Animal Park. On Sunday I met up with Mountain Bike Bill and we rode the San Juan Trail near San Juan Capistrano. Pictures and a tiny bit of commentary here.
