Neither rain nor snow nor….well, if you work for the Post Office you know the rest. Evidently our good buddy Duane and his custom P-51 follow the same credo, as evidenced by this note I just received from him….
Route 39 (Azusa Canyon) is clear all the way up to the Crystal Lake Cafe and Trading Post (elevation 5200 ft.) with very slight sanding (dirt) covering the road after the recent rains.
The weather was clear and cool (50-ish) with snow piled around the edge of the parking lot. The hot chocolate sure tasted good after a cool ride.
Oh, what a ride!
Hey, that’s really cool, Duane! Thanks for the photos and the ride report!
I need to get out on the Baja Blaster….the weather finally broke this week (we’ve had a hellacious amount of rain, folks), and I opted to head over to the rifle range with my .458 Win Mag this morning instead of riding. It’s a tough call, but today the elephant rifle won the toss…you know, it’s open season on elephants year round in California! You’ve inspired me, though….tomorrow, for sure, I’m going to get my knees in the breeze!
Thanks again, Duane…we really appreciate the input and especially your great photos!
