We can't be in Sicily until later this month but Southern California is a more-than-OK alternative to frozen Iowa this time of year. Here you see Heather near the top of a fairly steep and twisty climb above Westlake Village. On this day traffic was (thankfully) light though we did get stuck on the descent behind some boob piloting an expensive sports car without the skill to drive it! How lame are you when someone on a BICYCLE is yelling at you to speed up on the twisty descent? We're now back in Santa Barbara enjoying more sunny skies and warm temperatures.
