Was lucky to have the summit to myself, all the better for soaking in the magnificent sights... Sunny, but windy with occasional swirling clouds near this and other summits.
Easy 8-mile hike up the fire road with really nice views. Peak 1 of 4 followed by Vetter, Mooney & Barley Flats.
Backpacked to the saddle via Colby Canyon and set up tent there for a night...woke up and tackled the summit next morning. Very prominent peak so the views are really nice. Ran into a group of Chinese trail runners at that top that made me feel out of shape although I feel like I am in decent shape.
I do this every once in a while. Fun (though fairly steep) mt. bike or hike with nice views up top.
A group of 8 did Josephine, then Strawberry, and finally Lawlor. 18.3 miles and 5,700' of gain on a beautiful spring day, not too hot.
We hiked up via Colby Canyon, and up the fire road (with a cross country shortcut here and there). Nice rocks to play around on near the top, and beautiful views on a chilly Fall afternoon. Walked down in the dark on the fire road.
This was an amazing ride up to the top of Josephine peak. The Autumn colors were incredible paired with the dramatic lighting and crisp cool air.
Walked up the Josephine Peak Road to the summit then east across the ridge to Strawberry & Lawlor. There is still lots of poodle dog between Josephine and Strawberry, but it appears the area may be opening soon as there was a large Sierra Club trail crew working on the trail from Red Box to Strawberry Saddle.
Hiked with wifey
Hiked to one of the ugliest summits in San Gabriels. Nice views from top but a lot of clutter is distracting.
Ran into some narly ultrarunners doing some very impressive training . . .
The wife and I hiked this once, don't remember when????
Hot day, and decided to make it a bit longer by heading towards Strawberry (and then some)...
We hiked up the fire road. There was snow right after the saddle, so pretty much post holed my way up, whew! Great views from here!
First time on Colby Canyon trail. Nice short day hike with a couple buddies and one of their 10 year old kids. A little snow on upper parts of fire road.
Nice hike from Colby Canyon with awesome front range views. Was cloudy down below but sunny up at the top.
nice peak! don't like the fireroad though
Loop with Lawlor, Strawberry, and Josephine.
Nice winter dayhike in the San Gabriels.
