Halloween Hike  Sucess!

Fun hike with the kids. Magnificent and remote feel despite the proximity to the highway and PCT. Sweeping views of the desert and surrounding peaks.

Nice short hike  Sucess!

After completing the drive to the top of Palomar, I headed over to the Laguna Mountains to complete this short hike before driving to my work retreat. This was a nice short hike, albeit a bit hot, with spectacular views in all directions. Winter would be ideal rather than June, but it's a fair ways from San Diego and I never seem to have enough time, so I decided to do it now rather than wait for the perfect conditions to hike it.

Breathtaking Views!  Sucess!

Climbed this peak with McMurdoSound in conjunction with Monument Peak, Spontaneity Peak (self-named because this peak didn't have one), and Garnet Mountain. It was a fun day!

Snowing on Garnet  Sucess!

Again, one of those spur of the moment ideas....Joan and I decided to do a quick trip from San Diego and chose this peak. No views, but we had snow all the way. No one else around.

6 inches of fresh snow, beautiful, first did Garnet Mountain then Garnet Peak. Outstanding views. My micro HPS quest is over for now. 1993-2007 chasing old Sam Fink. What a fun journey. Thanks Sam
