Fun Winter Trip  Sucess!

Amazing amount of snow after all the dry, warm weather. We were able to glissade all the way to the parking lot only stopping in a few short sections to to adjust our descent and stay on route. What a great day!

Vincent Gap  Sucess!

Fairly busy trail, but an enjoyable, steady climb to the top. Cool seeing the desert and coastal areas in one big view.

Glad I came up from Dawson...had the PCT to myself both ways - only had to endure the crowds at the summit.

Annual Day Hike to Summit  Sucess!

The church I attend annual Men's Retreat is held in Wrightwood. Every year on the Saturday afternoon, I do a B/P summit day hike this year got 4 of the other guys to join for their first ascent of the peak. Lots of snow! Talked to 8 people doing the PCT (different groups).

Fun winter ascent  Sucess!

Great time and perfect day. Snow was deep! Just wish the road wasn't closed 2.5 miles before the trailhead.

night view  Sucess!

Back in the eighties, when I still lived in California, I had fond memories of BP. On three different occasions, I sat on the summit, in perfect summer conditions, and watched the sunset. When is started to clear, right before twilight, you could see Mt Whitney clearly to the north. When the sun went down, the view of the LA basin at night was very spectacular. All of the lights were amazing from almost 10,000 feet. I remember you could tell where the coastline was, by the lights. A truly inspirational experience.

From SR2  Sucess!

Uneventful dayhike from SR2. Small storm from previous night left a trace of snow at the higher elevations.
