Peak #4 of my California thanksgiving vacation trip
joined mebo1126 for this hike. views from the top were awesome. we then bushwacked a bit to the peak next to monument peak, where the views were even better.
Decided to hike Monument Peak, Garnet Peak and Garnet Mountain today. When McMurdoSound and I got to the summit we noticed another little peak (which we named Spontaneity Peak) approximately a half mile to the north. There was a very informal trail that we followed/bushwhacked to get to the top of that peak. It was well worth it as there was a beautiful view.
Nice views from the top. Right around 1 hour roundtrip.
This was rough and creepy after dark!
Part of an 8-peak SDC weekend. <1hr RT, summit not as cool as Garnet Peak, but views here are even better IMO.
HPS peak #2 of 7 for the day. Took Jon Barbour on his first peak-o-rama. Not sure if he'll be doing it again!
nice, i remember this hike, definitly spooky times haha
Great views, the HPWREN cam has a good live view from here.
Nice view. I could do without the towers and what not.
One of nine for the day, chasing HPS peaks in the area. Trip Report
Bagged this mountain with Granite Mountain (Anza-Borrego) a couple years back. With the desert views, it gave me an appreciation for the work I just did.
Another cool trip to the Laguna Mountains. First stop was the top of the Palomar Mountains trying to find flowers, then a hike on Monument. No flowers but a great day.
