New Roads

It always amazes me when I find new roads right in my backyard. Today was no exception.

What started out with a standard well-traveled route past vineyards...

Wound past some familiar brown hills spotted with oak trees.

And led to some new roads - check out the miniature Christmas trees!

It was hot. And dry. I saw three snakes (1 was alive), 2 dead possums, and between Mike and I - we had 4 flats. It was a busy day on the bike!

This tiny red tree is the only fall foliage I saw all day. I guess in Southern CA I have to wait til closer to Thanksgiving for fall colors. A huge congrats to everyone who raced Kona yesterday.
