Here's some pics from a quick 3hr tour bowlrider and I did last Friday near Strawberry, CA.

I've been hitting this area for years and most people recognize it as the famous climbing area Lover's Leap. These days I just call the zone The Strawberry Fields......and I hope to be able to hit them forever. Enjoy.

No time to waste, bowlrider in hot pursuit

After 10 mins or so I catch a ride back up the pass, looking over to Stoney, Lover's proper, and East Wall

After a quick hitch to the rig I'm back to get bowlrider, looks like he had fun.
