We live at the northeastern edge of Irvine. Beyond us is wilderness. Some of it, supposedly, is spectacular.
For instance, the sinks in nearby Limestone Regional Wilderness Park has been called a “Miniature Grand Canyon of Orange County.” Probably a little bit of hyperbole, but worth seeing, right?
My next attempt was on Jeffrey Road. Once again it looks fine on the map. The reality was different.
One open gate featured at least ten locks, each sharing a chain link with the next. It’s not great security, but it allows any of ten groups to control access to the road without sharing a key. Pretty clever.
Today I’m just disappointed.
