It has been awhile since I have visited Cooks Corner in El Toro near Lake Forrest. I rode the Ortega Highway and then over Antonio Parkway down through Trabuco Canyon and Live Oak. On the way I had to stop for a deer in the road. It was odd seeing it at that time of the day but it was quite overcast and that section of road goes through a wooded area. The animal just stood there and looked at me before jumping off into the woods and flanked me. For a moment there I thought it would jump back in front of me. I wish I had the presence of mind to take a photo.
Cooks Corner is a biker hangout on weekends with hundreds of bikes. Most Harleys but you will see a mix of other makes and models. They have a decent barabecue on weekends as well.
