Quick trip through LA. I sure do miss the San Gabriel high country.

So much fun in snow  Sucess!

One of the best hiking days of the year for our group of friends. The hike had it all - great weather, enough snow to need an ice-ax, enough ice to need crampons and great views. Very slow going down. Will do again in the future.

From Dawson Saddle via PCT & North Ridge  Sucess!

Stayed on PCT until reaching large snow-covered sections, then roped up for practice and went straight up the north ridge to summit.

Camped on top for the Supermoon!  Sucess!

Stayed the night atop Baden Powell and watched the Supermoon rise above Mount Baldy! Got some gorgeous shots of the Wally Tree at sunset with the moon behind. Wow, what a place.

In the Snow  Sucess!

This was part of a series of climbs during a back pack in snowy conditions over my spring break back in 1970. No tent, just a tarp and a sleeping back!

In the Snow  Sucess!

Nice day. Post holing part of the way. Almost did not make it up the snow, which was virgin at time, wearing only mountain boots. Came up from Vincent Pass.

Twice is Nice  Sucess!

Tried this peak from Vincent Gap last year and was unsuccesful due to high amount of snow. This time we went when it was a little nicer. Great views next time we'll go from Dawson

Via Dawson Saddle  Sucess!

Tagged this and Mount Burnham via the PCT from Dawson Saddle. Honestly, this is one of the most beautiful hikes in the San Gabriels. The summit is unusual and the trail is never harder than moderate difficulty. Highly recommended especially from Dawson, I think its a 10 mile hike and a few thousand feet of gain. I've thrown pics up on my blog in case its helpful to you.

1st timer  Sucess!

Easy trek up. Some snow patches, but nothing to write home about. Lovely view of the Baldy complex of peaks.

First time up this mountain, eyes almost popped out when reaching the summit.

Different Range

Beautiful day to break trail in 6-12" of the gooey-est snow I've been in for a long long time! Winds were a wonderful sustained 35mph with gusts that nearly knocked me over but the sun was out and we stayed pretty warm. Can't wait for a couple more feet of wet stuff to set this baby up for some ski descents!
Tagged Burnham as well....boring summit.
