Julian Mini Meet WCM & C3

Julian Mini Meet WCM & C3
Originally uploaded by foodchronicles.
Today because of the heat, we decided to join a good groups of friends - West Coast Minis and Cooper Club for Charity better known as c3 - and go for a drive. A group of c3ers left from LA at 6:30 this morning, met another group at 8 in Corona. The rest of us picked up from there along the way. We met at Pala road in Fallbrook and began driving thr chosen map at 9 a.m. It was designed to be a good road test of twisties!

This is a picture at Lake Henshaw. We stopped halfway to Julian, after a few good twisty roads, to take some pictures and get some water. Little did we know the heat would follow us so well. At this stop it was 96.

After a quick break we finished the run to Julian. The first part of the group took off like gangbusters, while we (the other 20+ minis) tooled along, made a wrong turn, turned around and then took a small 9 mile really twisty road! Oh my! Finally we found our way around to Julian and it was only 101! We had a slice of good Julian pie (which I did not photograph) and headed for home.

We had a great time and look forward to going on another group run again. Hey guys let's do the beach next time!

UPDATE: Sheryl, a c3 motoring buddy, sent me a couple of pictures! Thank you Sheryl! Here is the pie!
