|NavySeabee||April Fools Day - Belated |
Date Climbed: Apr 8, 2006
|Well the belated April Fools joke of the day was played on me by the Los Coyotes Indians. My oldest daughter and I were heading to Hot Springs Mountain on an absolutely glorious day. I thought it would be a perfect day to bag the highest point in San Diego county and spend quality time with my soon to be teenager.|
Well, after arriving at the entrance booth we quickly changed our plans due to the large sign which stated no 4x4, ATVs, hiking, biking, camping, no passing "GO", no collecting $200. All violaters would be prosecuted. That's a heck of a welcome sign if you ask me! Not wanting to tempt fate we turned tail and headed for the Laguna Mountains and Garnet Peak.
After the short hike up the PCT and summit trail we enjoyed the awesome views without the company of an antenna farm! Bummer the Los Coyotes Tribe wants to keep the highpoint to themselves, but my daughter and I had a great day nonetheless.

|The PCT following the rim of the Laguna Mtns is a very scenic hike. There are a handful of peaks along the way (including Garnet) which can be easily tagged. Garnet had the best views of the bunch.|
The second visit was an HPS peakbagging exercise, good fun. Trip Report

|My latest summit was a midnight hike and bivy on top to watch the stars and await sunrise. There is barely room on the summit for one person to lay down, though there are some flat spots 20ft below the summit rocks. Amazing sunrise.|
