Back from the Wilderness

We just returned from a few days in the cold mountain air of the Sequoias with bears and secret swim holes. More pics and the story as soon as I get a few minutes...

MOTO MEDITATE


TO LIVE AND RIDE IN LA from Rob Brooks on Vimeo.


Moving to the land of plenty, a year and a half ago has blessed us with more ups than downs, so I remain thankful.
One of these ups has been my Saturday morning ritual of motorcycle meditation. Riding Angeles Crest and clearing my head of all of the nonsense and toxic stress that piled on throughout the week. After 15 minutes all of that garbage is gone and I begin to breath clearly and think positively.
On the way back down, gravity starts doing most of the work. At this point you begin to feel a simulated sensation of weightlessness. Gopro and my bubble shield are working nicely together to capture my state of euphoric moto bliss.

Tour De Malibu Birthday Ride

We finally did the Mullholand Highway Route. There were just a few nice cars spotted that day. About 25 Lambos and 15 Ferraris. 

I promise to bring a real camera with me again someday. These screen grabs are from my and Monica's instagram

This lady enjoyed some cake and then migrated to the parking lot with a herd of confused rich old Malibu people that I was not excited to share the road with. Happy Birthday! PS. It's my birthday too!




Our Friend and Malibu guide, Jeremiah. A little too fast for us around those Malibu corners on the Ducati.

Mormon Rocks

We're in the land of plenty and I want to see it all. I first saw these unique rock formations upon leaving Angeles Crest and exiting Wrightwood on to the 15. This was about 6 months ago and I've finally gotten round exploring these with Keith.

Here's some unprocessed iphone pics and a few SLR's. The overcast day made for some really awesome visuals, especially on the way home.








After winning the altitude battle to the top, we had a tough time finding a legit decent back down. Most of these rocks werent very stable and were covered in loose sediment. Loose sediment that led to a 200 or more feet down to more rock. 







Geocaching or dead body? 


This photo makes these look small, but this wall is about 20 foot high to the top of the holes. 




















We exited through the mountains and caught this insane sun vs clouds scene. A bad driver came within an inch of hitting me while taking these photos.  



Low visibility on the route home. Feels like the PNW.




I have a few days free between jobs, before I start my new gig. Trying to make the best of them. Solo trip to Anza Borrego tomorrow. More adventuring soon.
