climbed up Mt. Lawlor via its south ridge and continued east to Barley Flats; use trail overgrown in places with some bushwhacking and route finding; deep snow in the more shaded areas; abundant bear tracks; continued further along the fenced camp and down Adler Creek Trail to Upper Tujunga Canyon Road; hiked up the road for a while and took the southwest ridge directly up to Vetter Mountain.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
