Bicycling in Temecula is a bit different than San Diego. Most of the days,
there is a slight mist that hangs over the valley. Part of it is the smog that is trapped by the hills. The other part is actually an Asian-like mist that is always there.
According to the American Indian history of the area, the name Temecula originates from this mist. Whether it’s true or not, well, that’s up to the historians.
But, when that mist burns off, you start to roast. My photo from the middle of September 2011 shows I’m happy and cooking.
