Santa Ana Mountains Solo Run

I usually don't go out solo, but my usual co pilot was out of town. And the Main Divide Road is a pretty well traveled truck trail on the weekends. 23 miles in 3.5 hours. Ortega HWY to Silverado Canyon, over Santiago Peak. (Highest Point in the OC)

Here is a nice view of Trabuco Creek and Mission Viejo CA. And a little flex at the top. Wish I had got a better angle.

I found this nice jeep at the top with no driver around. Must have been out hiking. I also got some new pinstripes. The wife wasn't thrilled about the scratches when I got home. I told her I don't mind as long as I did it (trail badges), but if someone scratches in a parking lot I would kick some butt.

That's the only thing I like about CA, is the various terrain. Thanks to the fault lines we have all kinds of geography. Too back the politics are wrong here. I'm a native TX. Those mountains are basically right in the middle of a heavily populated metropolitan area. Right in the middle of 5 million people. I purchased a CA off road trail book and I'm working my way out from nearest to farthest trail so I can mark them off.
