Rattlesnake  Sucess!

There was a rattlesnake on the road. There were lots of flowers and they smelled good. Climbed it with Papa, KK and Hope.

Great Start to 2009 Climbing Year...  Sucess!

Took my girl Jeri on her first real hike...good for her that the asphalt trail is relatively easy for a beginner approach. Nice short day trip.

Azalea Trail Loop  Sucess!

Perfect day for snowshoeing! Found at least 2' of snow to the top and totally warm temps shortly after sunrise. Had the place to myself for the trip up, but encountered the typically "trailer park trash" in jeans and sweatshirts on my descent and in the Paso Picacho Campground parking lot at end of trip. YUK! Give me some wine!!

Post-Thanksgiving hike  Sucess!

Part of two days of hiking with an HPS group on Thanksgiving weekend. Nice view to the west on this day.

Long on the "to-do" list  Sucess!

Been meaning to come here for years. Big fire kept us away for awhile until the land healed a bit. Nice easy hike, nice views despite oncoming storm front. Stonewall across the way looks a lot more interesting, so we'll be back.

Before the fire  Sucess!

Hiked up to the summit several times, before the devastating Cedar Fire. Nice to see the photos of the forest recovering.

Close to SD  Sucess!

Been up a number of times. The best way is to take the north trail to the top.

Southeastly Approach  Sucess!

I gained the summit via a long aproach form the southeast from somewhere below the state park. I lost all of my tracking data on a previous hard drive so I don't have all the details. I know the weather was sunny, several inches of snow on the ground, and lots of downed trees to negotiate.

Via Fire Road  Sucess!

Nice day hike with the wife up the fire road, snow was on the ground for ~1.5 miles to the top! They need to do something about those antennas though...takes away from such a beautiful view.

Fire Road  Sucess!

Been putting this one off due to the paved road to the summit...picked the clearest day of the year to hike to the top, we had views of the Salton Sea, Rabbit, and the snow in the San Gabriels and on San G. Met a blind guy who hiked the road solo, "been doin' it for 27 years" he said. Looped Middle Peak with Cuyamaca for a decent 5 hour day.

Christmas Eve Walk  Sucess!

Nice easy walk up the fire road. Development on the top is a bit disheartening, but the views make you forget about it.

Road  Sucess!

Cycled up the road - does this count? :-)

No lions  Sucess!

Made many trips up the fire road. Haven't ever seen any mtn. lions, but have seen the paw prints...

Pre-Fire  Sucess!

Was a fun place to go before the fire. Can't say I remember much about the peak, I was fairly young at the time.

Morning exercise  Sucess!

I was out in SD for a wedding and wanted to get in some exercise before the wedding. This peak offered the perfect opportunity for a short outing. There was snow covering a lot of the road once I got to the small saddle, but it didn't really hinder progress and it was kind of cool to be looking at the ocean while standing in snow!

I Could Do Without The Buildings and Antennas At The Top  Sucess!

This is a popular peak but less impressive than nearby Stonewall Peak. Now that the fires have almost destroyed the forest, the nature views along the route are limited to dead pines and lush undergrowth that has taken over in their place.

Route: Fire Road  Sucess!

Left the trail head (HWY 79) at 10:00 am, didn't even consider bringing pants with me and they were not needed. Beautiful day for a climb, the Santa Ana's were pushing a lot of the smog off the coast. It looks like the area is starting to recover nicely from the fire, although about 90% of the trail still has charred remains of old pine trees along the way.
All in all, it was much better than being at work.
