Nov 15, 2005 - Tuesday
San Diego, CA To Hesperia, CA

Hmmm - to simply head east or to head northeast and divert to some railroad spots - Cajon Pass & the Tehachapi Loop. The weather looks good - I think I'll go (who knows when I'll get the chance to see these spots and many people, hearing of the trip I'm on, say DO IT - DO IT NOW).

First route is to take S1 / Sunrise Hwy - suggested by both Mike and Miles (San Diego STn'er). It was a nice ride - sun to my back for most of the route.

Cajon Pass next up - off I go - night driving with Interstates to slog through the urban areas. Morning will bring some good lighting for pictures.

So, does the bike look cleaner!
An hour or two with a towel and rinse hose at the Coan home.

Out in the ocean - a couple personal watercraft out jumping waves.
