I see a Valley said Father Junipero Serra. I think, said Father Junipero, I shall call it the Valley of San Fernando.

Great photos! I've ridden in that area several times, wonderful routes.
Some great riding roads up and down off those mountains!

Wasn't he also the one who build the missions in Southern California?

rebecca -- just making a little joke.

BTW, I live in the San Fernando Valley. I was born and grew up in the Bel-Air, Brentwood, Westwood area. My dad was born in Los Angeles in the 1920's. His dad was born in Northern California in the late 1800's, moving to L.A. in the very early 20th Century (my granddad's dad was a forty-niner). I moved to the Valley in the 1970's because I just wasn't as rich as my parents.

Anyway, like every L.A. schoolkid, I learned about Father Serra and the missions in elementary school. It's great that Serra's name is familiar to you.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the SMMTS! Done many a rides there and it is still my favorite place to ride- over Boulder, and PDX. Don't want to live there again, but still love riding there.
