    Still blows my simple mind that you can surf and play in the snow within 20 miles of each other :norton

    All the great riding led to this :cry first time I have seen this gate closed, must be slickness on the other side...oh well, I can think of worse places to back track through

    The sun was struggled from behind a level of clouds..I was optimistic it would clear as I climbed out of the ever so fertile Oxnard valley

    [​IMG]

    Up into Somis making our way to Piru via Grimes Canyon's squiggley road :nod the sun is shining temps are climbing, not a worry in the world :D

    Back to a mostly unexplored piece of land, to me at least. Bouquet Canyon area

    [​IMG]

    Wanted to link dirt routes together from here to Frazier Park, all easy dirt.

    Diverted off Leona Divide (6N04) early for some road damage...

    [​IMG]

    Had to take Spunky Edison (6N09) to Spunky Canyon, great curvey beast of a road :wink:

    Right onto San Franquito up to Leona Divide continuation to Hughes Lake.

    [​IMG]

    From there it was Pine Canyon searching for more dirt to Gorman area

    Tried this climbing road

    [​IMG]

    Was greeted by my old arch enemy of late...ice :cry

    Backed out of trying to tackle ice again, twice this month is enough for a bit

    Down Pine Canyon, another super fun twisty road

    At the end of Pine Canyon is a T intersection, last time I was here I went right...so let's see what left brings..:wink:

    Interesting :D

    Great road with a mix of pavement, potholes, loose gravel, land slides and sand :eek1:lol3 Loved it

    [​IMG]

    but it had to end like this :cry
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It's all good though, I found a nice route of dirt close to the locked gate..it looked like it would bring me back toward civilization and more importantly gas, food and drinks
