Mormon Rocks & Redlands

Inland Empire
December 30, 2015

We abandoned our attempt to go skiing at Mountain High when we saw the sad look in the parking attendant's eyes which meant, "oh you poor fools." We fighting with everyone else in Los Angeles for a space in the dry parking lot, just for a chance to slide down the meager tongues of machine snow sprayed onto otherwise brown and dry runs.

So we turned around and headed back down the mountain, stopping first for the world-class chicken-fried steak at little cafe in Wrightwood. Down in the Cajon Pass, we pulled off the road and spent an hour scampering around the Mormon Rocks, before heading over to Redlands and the Hangar 24 brewery out at the airport. After that, we stopped in to see one of the Oscar contenders, The Big Short, and wrapped up the evening at the diner in Empire Bowl, which some guys at Hangar 24 had recommended, BoomShakaLaka. It took about an hour, but we didn't mind the wait and the burger and fries were pretty great.
