A very enjoyable hike with great views at San Gabriel Front Range. Last mile up to Strawberry Peak much more streneous than the beginning but very fun. I remember having had near misses with those prickly yuccas.
Have done this route on other occassions, but this time I had my family come with me as a Father's Day present. Every time I do this route, I'm convinced that the ridge from Lawlor Saddle to the summit of Strawberry is well more than a mile. But the sign says 1 mile.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
