Lukas and I took our bikes to Mount Umunhum and tried out some mountain biking: down one of the trails, and then back by way of the road. I’ve recently been enjoying SoulCycle spin classes, but this ride definitely gave them a run for their money, making the downhill moments all the more rewarding.

It’s nice to enjoy a little of the Californian lifestyle, and the scenery is truly beautiful.

The old radar tower—closed now due to peeling lead paint—offsets the scenery with a striking, almost brutalist cube.
