Glendora mountain road!

So yesterday I needed a little pick-me-up after breaking up with my gf after 2 years... what better than some top-down fun?
Decided to do Glendora mountain road: http://tinyurl.com/ygvzzxl

Not a very long run but enough to enjoy the mountain air and clear my head. Road was DESERTED (well, except for a few cyclists whom I buried under a ton of dirt--unintentionally).
No cops, and only had to pass one car! Beautiful road, there was even a little of leftover snow on the sides as I got close to Mt Baldy.

Just what the doctor prescribed

Sorry about the GF.

GMR's a lot of fun. We've done Azusa Canyon (HWY 39) to GMR to Mt. Baldy a few times. Part of 39 is shut down now due to damage from the recent rains. Hopefully it'll be fixed and opened back up for some spring time fun.

I went here today again. A few videos I took... the ones I took driving were with my cell phone stuck to the windshield in different positions, I'm still trying to figure out what works better.
