Gallery 6 - Newcomb's Ranch Spring '08

It is the first Saturday of Spring, and Shirley and I took a ride up into the San Gabriel Mountains to visit a little restaurant up on the Angeles Crest Highway called Newcomb's Ranch. As is usually the case on a beautiful Saturday, the place was a beehive of activity as campers, bikers and hikers from all over the Southland descended on Newcomb's for food and camaraderie.

As far as the bikers go, Newcomb's always attracts an eclectic group, with everything from hogs, scooters, touring machines, and crotch rockets on display.

The restaurant, only forty miles from downtown LA, sits at just under 5000' of elevation on busy Rte 2. There was some snow on the side of the road, and quite a bit more up on the north facing slopes of the higher peaks.

I talked with several bikers as Shirley mulled about and took in the sights. There was one cherry '67 BMW on the lot that the owner was understandably proud of. I took pictures and talked, then we enjoyed lunch.

Here are some shots from this beautiful and sunny Saturday.

I love California, and the west.
