montrose and beyond


the things you see when traveling by bicycle are often quite majestic. although i'd never say that about the 210, it looks that way from above.

I do know where this is. I always approach this area from La Canada. La Neigra trail (my guess) offers a beautiful view of some mid century hillside houses. If only developers would consider building in such a non obtrusive style when they take over hillsides. Oh yes, and go green!

"In my little town, I grew up believing God keeps his eye on us all... he used to lean upon me as I pledged allegiance to the wall."

I grew up here... my elementary school, jr. high & high schools are down there in that valley. The firebreaks on those hills are the trails where I trained for cross country races: we were league champs. My first jobs were all in this community: the country club where I worked clearing tables, the houses I painted, the swimming pools I cleaned. My first wife and I lived in a little bungalow over there in the haze. I moved away in the mid seventies - I live in the hills outside Seattle now. Thanks for this moment of nostalgia. You can never go "home" again.
