On Friday I took the Miata up to Angeles Crest to find some fun roads to go enjoy on my day off. I woke up late, was lazy all morning, and played ultimate frisbee from around 1230-2. So it was a slow start to the day and I didnt end up at Mt Wilson until about 3. This led to a bit of traffic on Angeles Crest Highway since people use it for commuting. But eventually I made it out further past the crowded sections and further off the grid. I continued on through some nice sweepers until I made it to the Mt Wilson Access Road. This little road is one of my favorite canyon roads in the entire Southern California region for a few reasons. It is a single entrance/exit road, theres barely any traffic on a weekday, and it has some of the best technical turns I have found. Plus now it has fresh new pavement to enjoy!

It was truly a beautiful day up there and I just love how quiet it is in the mountains on a weekday. On the weekend you get a lot of people using the area for recreational activities and a lot of traffic going by. But when I was up there, just a few cars had gone by and I was able to make a few passes of the access road unimpeded. Now here is the video and then I will talk about the next canyon road I went to.

After enjoying some canyon runs at Mt Wilson and taking a good bit of time to just relax in the mountain air, I made my way home just after 4pm. On the way home I stopped in La Canada for some disc golf before continuing on to Little Tujunga Canyon Road. This was a road I have heard about but had never made it over there. Well, I think I have found another favorite road to enjoy! Plus the views there at near sunset were just spectacular. I will have to go back sometime and just enjoy some photo opportunities. I didnt stop at all though since I was just enjoying the ride.

Overall a great use of the day and I am excited to head back to Little Tujunga sometime soon. Now it is off to Santa Barbara for a nice relaxing day at the beach!
