N to Atascadero

Recommended Posts

I did a great ride several yrs ago to get to Temecula Days, by going thru the San Gabriels, then the San Bernadinos, and then Idyllwild.  It was very memorable and I though I'd try it again, as it hadn't snowed in weeks, and Todd hadn't scheduled Ramona Days yet, so I called on a couple of hooligans that I know on a Sunday and they said they'd ride along at least 'til the Grizzly Cafe on Monday.  After a bruch there one decided to head home and one continued on with me until the bottom of ca38 near I-10.  So I headed up 243 then down 74 and spent the night in Hemet.  Don't stay at the Vagabond!  I then left the next morn to Anza Borrego, and Mt Palomar and spent that night in Ramona.

 

My riding buds indicated that they'd be willing to do the whole ride again the upcoming weekend but I nixed that idea and instead suggested something up north.  We hemmed and hawed and settled on Atascadero as a destination and stay 2 nights there. We left on Friday morn from Angeles Crest Shell and headed up ca2.  It was 50º when we left at 9am with some left over storm clouds lingering around but it soon dropped to the low 40ºs, and it was beautiful.

We turned left on Big Tujunga headed down into the SFV.  I don't think this is as heavily traveled as Angeles Crest and Angeles Forest as evidenced by the rougher surface and cracks.

Then we slowed down as we came upon this mishap.

We then took a couple of surface streets over to Little Tujunga.  I've been on this road many times but never this early in the morning, and headed N.  Again it was beautiful.
