That's beautiful. Angeles Crest Hwy is not crazy steep and doesn't have crazy sharp turns. 14 miles descending was a pleasure without brakes except for some traffic and wet/icy spots on top but it was really fun descending it. I don't think it compares to Vivaldi's Invierno but I think it was pretty close.

It was painful above 4000ft elevation because the water from melting snow splashed on my legs and the exposed skin was freezing. The descent was worth the climb.
