I woke up this morning and the weather was amazing. Overcast with a few drops of rain but still in the 80s. I put on shorts and a t-shirt and decided to take the car for a drive.
I would drive one hour out then turn around and drive back. That way I wouldn't waste the rest of the day bumping around the back country. I hit the road at 8:54.
In a half an hour I made it to camp 1 at Rowher Flats. It was virtually empty, one lonely truck parked in the corner. I decided to see how far I could go on the loop trail. I turned down Texas Canyon then up Fall Canyon Road.

At exactly an hour I reached Sierra Pelona Road and there was a motorcycle and the only other person in the park. I stop and said "hey." We talked cars and bikes and racing and Mexico.
Sierra Pelona looked rough ahead so I got ready to turn around. I was alone, I'd met my hour limit, but the cyclist explained to me that what I saw was a side road and the main road was no worse than what I'd been on. Also, the view from the top was amazing. He lead the way and I headed towards the top.
The whole trip made for a very sweet Wednesday.
