Hummus, could you explain that third photo down? And then in the next pic you are eating something in a sandwich? To each his own....as long as you have enough ketchup.

I approach camp 9 via may canyon. Most of the snow I saw was about half a mile away from the helipad.

I do not know that road — looks like fun. Does it start at Veterans Memorial Community Regional Park? And how's the road surface -- doable on a road bike with 25s?

Yep, up through sylmar veterans park. It's kind of washed out and with rubble due to the latest storms. I've taken a road bike with small tires (28mm) in the past multiple times, likely do-able although you might not have as much fun. I can describe it as a crappier Trash Truck (backside of Griffith) with no cars. Get tacos on Glenoaks after your descent back into the valley.

Thanks…unfortunately I only have road bikes with 25s at the moment and am holding firm that these 2 Colnagos have to go before I entertain a cross/gravel whip.

If I had one, I'd think about a loop that begins with May Canyon then continues from Bear Divide to Mt. Gleason since I've heard that's a nice route (but not a nice road). One of these days…

Lots of heavy rain the past few days. I love how clear the air is after it rains.

Cycling from San Jose CR around Arenal

What an adventure. I planned this with BikeMap App and a Garmin Edge205. We had 20,000 ft of climbing planned but when the road turned rough we found our way with public busses or Taxi’s for a total of 12,493 ft. The Polaroid camera was just 1 of the items in my panniers. The shack was our first nights stay near Paos volcano which erupted that night😛 it took an old 4WD to get in and out. We did some hiking, ziplining, and a catamaran tour for snorkeling, and lots of making friends with animals.
