Fork of the San Gabriel River - The Bridge to Nowhere

What a journey.
Started (and ended) under cloudless iridescent blue skies deep
in the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Azusa. The East Fork
was flowing cold, fast and was this gorgeous blue-green color
that soothed the eye. Martin Gomez, Jeff Klein and Jon Adams participated
in this near-perfect ride. What would have made it perfect? A
real trail, less yucca to get punctured by (ouch!), less cactus
to fall into (eeeek!), and more time to make it all the way up
to the Bridge to Nowhere and spend a little time in the river.

Ok, so we weren't exactly alone
It gets a lot deeper than this
Can you spell "Yucca Spines"?
