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!

Great Desert views   Sucess!

Went up Garnet while I was hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail last summer. Awesome views all the way down to the desert floor.

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

Climbed from PCT  Sucess!

Took the longer PCT route from the picnic area to the north hoping to see more of the desert and the escarpment along the way. Not too many extra views unfortunately. Wife and I enjoyed the ~6 mile walk though in great weather.

the views

The girl actually went along on this one (no, I didn't pay her!). The views into Anza are unbeatable. I've heard that one can see the "green flash" at sunrise from Garnet. Anyone?

Route: From PCT

Did Schad's Indian Creek Loop from Penny Pines TH, hit Garnet near the end. Fantastic view from the eastern escarpment out over the desert. Some bird whizzed up one side of the peak and down the other so fast you could hear a loud FFttZZFFFTZZWWHHCYZTZZZZ... badass! Saw Acorn Woodpeckers, Turkey Vultures, and Red-Tail Hawks. Heard single bullfrog at Indian Creek crossing. Dodged dozens of mountain bikers on Noble Canyon trail.
