Lynda, Bill, Erick, Paul, Ahman, Marisa, Joe, Jeff, GregM.

Wahoo! Holiday started right. We climbed every mountain in Glendale/La Canada. We started at the ParkNRide at 2 Fwy / 134 Fwy. Climb UP Glenoaks 9%. At the top we turned UP AvonOak 15%. This was a new one for me. Woah. Down to Verdugo. UP Mountain Ave to the 2 Fwy 12%, over the freeway. GregM caught up to us, and to the top 13% of Emerald Isle. Down some of Emerald Isle, UP Lenore 14%. Down Kirkham / Sherwood / Hampstead to Chevy Chase. Rolled over toward Descanso, but turned UP Hampstead 10%. UP Sugarloaf 14%. Back to Chevy Chase and UP St. Katherine 11% around and down St. Augustine. Back to Chevy Chase. UP Emerald Isle 12%. Down Mountain.

At the last signal there was a change in route, Lynda called an audible for bonus points up AvonOak 13%. Yikes. We made it back. Time for Turkey Day!
