atavist5 islands a sunset and moonrise  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 11, 2009

atavist

Due to some warm Santa Anas and clear skies, I could clearly see 5 Channel Islands (including Catalina). Could also see San Clemente, Santa Barbara, San Nicolas, and Santa Cruz. Anacapa must have been visible as well but not easy to distinguish from Santa Cruz. It was nearly a full moon, so just after the sunset I watched the moon rise. Definitely didn't need a flashlight on the way down.

Hiked this one from the Sam Merrill trail head on Lake Ave. Started hitting snow at about 4000' and it got serious at Markum saddle. Lots of daylight burned by breaking trail through upwards of 2' snow drifts to the top of San Gabriel. Did Disappointment and Lowe before descending down by sunset.

Walked up San Gabriel Peak and Mt. Disappointment with my wife and both kids (9 and 8 years old) by new San Gabriel Peak trail. Returned to Red Box via Fireroad.

My wife and I (with our dog - badger) hit Mt. Lowe, San Gabriel Peak and Mt. Dissappointment today. Great hike from Eaton Saddle. The upper slopes were snow covered still, but you could hike with a light jacket. There were a couple of sketchy sections along the trail were the snow was really compacted and icy. Trekking poles helped. Great views...Baldy was all snowy.

Hiked to the top after we did Mt. Markham and it was cloudy, cold and it was trying to rain. Fun hike though and it was nice to get out there and do some peaks I've never done before.

Hit Disapointment and San Gabriel today, with my daugter on my back. We both signned the log in zip lock bags (won't survive the winter well). The best view I had ever seen, you could see the ocean clearly, Catalina and the other islands as well. Amazing.

My 25th HPS Peak.

Good views from the summit, although I could hardly name a single peak of the dozens from the HPS List that are no doubt visible. Pleasant jog down the trail before heading off to do the Iron-Roundtop-Granite-Rabbit loop in the evening.

After summiting Markham and Lowe I doubled back and nailed San Gabriel Peak and Mount Disappointment. I arrived at the summit the same time as a Korean Hiking Club. Have seen them many times and many places in the San Gabriels. Views south were hazy but views north of the Midrange Mountains were good.

Did a bunch of HPS peaks that day. Lowe, Deception, Dissapointment, Markham, Occidental, etc. Fun day to knock off a few on the list. It's quite prominent on the horizon from Griffith Park and LA.
