It started raining as soon as we started riding and was lightly sprinkling as we climbed Santiago canyon. This wasn't so bad because it meant Cook's Corner would be empty (those bikers hate getting their bikes wet!) and we would get our food sooner.
As soon as we crested the second summit and started the descent the skies opened up and we got completely soaked. We arrived at Cook's Corner in a state of soaked shock! At we expected, the place was almost empty.
|Cook's Corner is normally much busier than this|
As we continued south we saw heavy black clouds in front of us and pretty soon we were getting drenched again. We made a sprint for a tunnel about a mile ahead and stopped underneath it. The weather was awful again. Rando rule #1 - find shelter.

We got back to Anaheim with a total of 69 miles and still pretty damp. We ate at the Oyster Bar right there in the station. I've never had Chowder Fries before - they were great.
