Pictures Loaded:)

Another Great Run with fellow EF Members.
My Father (DAExploer) and I drove down from Big Bear in the morning with temps at 29 Degrees.
We were happy to get off the mountain into warmer temperatures.
Pretty simple trip to the meeting point and a great overall relaxing run with great scenery.
Had a Blast:thumbsup:

That's a pretty cool photo, I didn't realize I got so much air!:eek:
 






..I m actually camping not far from that trail tonight and it's the first time camping without her..:(
 






Chris got the better shots. My camera was giving me issues however here are some that I took. Sorry the water crossing wasn't in focus. I did find that there was some rock crawling going on, just not us.

I wished you had taken the photo of the snake also. Chris and I were talking about it and we didn't know that if you honked the horn of an Explorer that a snake would actualy move off the road.

Here is a photo of the bloom. The color in person was much crisper.:D

..Well... that and a couple closely placed 35"s while I gave him a stern verbal warning did the trick...:D
 






Flowers?

I thought we were supposed to stop and smell the roses...wait there wasnt any roses...

Here is the plant life I got.

..After we had all parted ways, I started heading over to the So. Main Divide Rd. OHV park in Wildomar..Something had happened and there were several Fire and Ambulance vehicles that were passing me..

..Although I was almost there I turned back..:(

..I took this time to stop by and pay my respects to those who had given their lives protecting our Wildlands. This is the California Wildland Firefighter Memorial..:salute:
