Its been a sad week and its only going to get worse. The well know Angeles Crest Highway is close in many portions due to a massive fire going on. The area has not burned in over 60 years and my last solo ride up just the week prior had me concerned. Its amazing the things you can see and appreciate when you ride solo and I had a chance to pull over. Bad enough SoCal is in a drought but our mountains are hurting and I was thinking when a fire hits this area, there is nothing to stop it! Some experts are considering letting it burn through to go through all the forest. Once it does it will leave a once beautiful and tranquil ride down to barren waste. It wont be the same for years and years. :dontknow: Prayers to those who lost their homes and to the firefighters doing their best!
