Ray, deserts are magical. 8-)

Finally got a good ride in today. Not much time to take pics, but saw this spike with a doe unafraid of people.

Here's a picture looking out from my backyard across the wash to the Tortolitas. It will give an idea of the density of the cactus population here. Pretty cool! I have 3 young 'uns in my front yard... They will grow more than an inch in 8 years DJ, but growth very much depends on conditions. The ones in my yard have grown about 18" in 10 years, but they do have fairly good water, altho not direct drip irrigation.

Very nice RC. I know about where you are located. I've got another friend, a former client of mine, up in the Dove Mountain development.

Yeah, we're up in that area too... I love the Torts to ride in, but now I have trouble getting up there to the sweet trails now... it's quite a climb, and these old drug-riddled bones struggle...

Well, it seems to me that HAB is making a real comeback with the adrenaline crowd, so why not carry that bike up to the good stuff? Unless yer talking' miles and miles of HAB............
Speaking of which, I should be getting back on the bike myself, here.....

Welcome to Hawg's Hottie Mtn Bike Guide Service. You guys haven't really ridden until you've ridden in So Cal. :D

Good to see you got out Norton. And thanks for the Cactus photo RC. Keep em coming.

I’ll vouch for Hawgs comment about riding in SoCal. Hard to concentrate at times. ;)

I finally got out for a ride today. Got in a measly 6 miles. Nice though, tacky dirt from a sprinkle we had yesterday. The temps have finally come down off the 100° mark we were near for so long. Today was 66° and perfectly clear, a hint of fall in the air. No other riders and only a handful of hiker encounters. I’m amazed I remembered how to ride that contraption. It’s been about a month since I’ve sat on one. ;) Saw several deer as well. I always see them out there though. Wild Turkey tracks all over but I did’t see any.

Yes, welcome to the San Gabriel Mountains. Lots of sketchy switchbacks and exposure. That trail is such a blast. Everyone I introduce someone to it, they can't wait to go back. It's my local black diamond trail and my crappy video camera does not do it any justice. Great for sharpening your skills. There is one switchback that I chicken out on every time though. I am close to attempting to clean it but it's a scary one because it has a 3' drop roller on the turn!

That looks like an extremely tight set of switchbacks, Mr. H!

Finally got around to watching your video Hawg. Looks like a fun outing, switchback city. Always a good feeling conquering those. I’m suggesting to you again that you have to make it down to San Juan Trail which is not that far from you. I’m not exactly sure how many but I’m thinking that trail has around 23 switchbacks if I remember correct. A 23 miles up and back trail with 3,500FT of elevation gain. That’s your ticket to ride. ;)

The ravine crossings and scenery are exactly what draws me there. That and it’s the longest end to end trail I have access to. Did almost 15 miles out today. About 2/3 full distance. Bailed to the road on an access trail for the way back. Shit was hurting. I was ready for a dip in that pool
