    CA: Ortega HWY

    The other day I was coming back down to San Diego from my bros place in Lake ELsinore and decided to go through the mountains...gotta tell you-THIS is a nice one!!! Beautiful secenry, nice, wide (two-lane) road with good blacktop and not much traffic. Makes for a wonderful Sunday drive. Not that I would ever participate in or condone the breaking of any trafic laws, but there was a distinct LACK of supervision on this little country road, which just begs to be hammered upon. If you're in the area and for some reason want to jump from the 15 to the 5 (westward bound) or from the 5 to the 15 I highly recommend this scenic and exciting byway.

    I used to cruise this a while back on my sport bike. Very fun and was a lot easier than driving all the way to Mullholand hwy, cruise the canyons, and then face the long drive back to Orange County. Word of caution though that in the morning there is a police presence...because that's when the serious knee draggers are out

    Ortega is a bust.

    There is a little road that goes along the ridge up there and ends up in temecula or something. It is paved the whole way but barely.
    It's fun but potholey so be careful.
