Had a great weekend in town. Very happy that Sweetpea drove all the way down to spend some time with me. Hope to see her again in a couple weeks.
Huge thanks to our queen and king trail angels Christina and David! Thanks so much for putting up with myself and my friends and putting together all that food!
Got a late start out of town today. Qball needed to go by the Verizon store to deal with the phone replacement, and their system was down so it took awhile for things to get sorted. We finally got on the trail after 1 pm.
The hiking was excellent today. Lots of climbing and pretty steep, but the trail was mostly in good shape and steep here is not like the stair climbing steep that we have in New England.
We climbed Mt Baden Powell and had pretty outstanding views on top of the mtn. Through the smog we could actually see a bit of the LA skyline.
Much of the day was spent in the big pines up on the ridges around Baden Powell. In and out of shade was quite nice..temps were cool at the high elevation as well.
Staying at the little Jimmy campsite tonight. Lots of hikers here as well. Great to be able to sit at a picnic table at eat the remainder of the days food and type up my journal entry.
