Jeremy called me on Saturday afternoon to let me know he was on his way home to take me on a surprise adventure! This sounded fun, so I immediately jumped out of bed and got ready. All I knew was that it would be outside and cold. I packed us a lunch and off we went. J insisted that I drive because "that was part of the adventure."
As we cruised along in Laser I saw the sign for Angeles Crest Highway and was even more excited. I've heard great things and had never been... Now I understood why my driving was part of the adventure! Beautiful twisty mountain road that took us up and up...
Finally we made it to what we've now named Cloud Cone Point. We parked Laser, hiked up beneath some Big Pines and came out with a beautiful view. It was definitely cold, so J built us a little fire. We ate our lunch, took some photos, and had a lovely time! We stopped between the two tunnels - a magical place of hope and wonder - and then began our descent along with the sun.
Remembering the new Americana Grove-like mall, we decided to go check it out. There was a gigantic Christmas tree, a massive fountain and the place was mobbed. So we elected to see Australia. Great, fun film!
A perfectly ideal day. :)
Here is the route we took and some photos from the adventure.
