Miriam and I celebrated the fifth anniversary of our engagement. We went up to Newcomb’s Ranch and had Ortega Burgers. She had a Bloody Mary, I had two “Hot Newcombizers” (coffee, Frangelica, whipped cream and a splash of 180 proof rum….sort of like Irish Coffee). We got engaged at Newcomb’s Ranch on 22 November 2008!
Later, we drove up Santa Clara Divide Road in the dark for 3 miles, to where the road is closed for the winter. Won’t be doing Mt. Pacifico or Bare Mountain by this route till the Spring! We had a storm the last week, mainly dumped over by Mt. Baldy and Wrightwood, there was about a quarter inch of snow here at the 6000 foot level where the road was closed.
