We took a great three mile loop hike up Mount Rubidoux, a paved trail leading to beautiful views of Riverside and the surrounding mountains. At the top is a huge cross, where they’ve had Easter sunrise services since 1909.
There are numerous memorials and markers on the trail honoring various people who were important to the area.
This is a popular local fitness trail. We saw lots of joggers, walkers, and cyclists. A guy with serious tattoos ran past us wearing what looked like a vest worn by suicide bombers. We were hoping he just had weights in all the pockets.
Our favorite was this guy, pulling a tire up the mountain.
I thought maybe he was training for some athletic event, but when he got to the cross at the top yelled “Thank you, Jesus!” Jim wondered what kind of mileage he gets out of that tire.
Southern California has sure been entertaining!
