I don’t go on rides like the Windseeker at Knott’s Berry Farm. So, while waiting for my more adventuresome family members who do, I took this snap with my iPhone 3Gs.
This photo was selected and published by the Los Angeles Times as their “Reader Photo of the Day.”
My friend Jeff snapped this photo of me cresting a sand dune at Oceano Dunes on my 1971 Husqvarna 360 Sportsman in the summer of ’72 shortly after we graduated from high school.
The 5 1/2 miles of beach and the sand dunes of Oceano Dunes is the only California State Park where it’s legal for vehicles to be driven on the beach. Of course, I got a ticket for popping wheelies on the beach in excess of the speed limit… Wheelies were something that Husky did with ease!
Ahhh… youth is wasted on the young. My friend Richard took this snap around 1970 +/-. I miss that hair!
