4th of 4 Peaks  Sucess!

After bagging Throop Peak, Mount Hawkins and Middle Hawkins it was time to go visit the shamble hut on Islip. Summitted via east ridge trail from Windy Gap, which was very windy. Views sucked due to poor air quality and all the burnt trees gave a feeling of destruction but I enjoyed the work-out very much.

second time  Sucess!

One of the most beautiful days I've seen in the San Gabriels in my 30 years of skiing and hiking them. Saw a flock of bandtailed pigeons and a very noisy coyote. Awesome day.

Second Time Climb  Sucess!

Last time getting high.....on Earth Day we hiked up Mt. Hillyer and because it was Earth Day I was doing my part picking-up trash on the trail. Well one of the bags had a bud in it. It had been several years so it took a few months to work-up to it. So I gave it a go.....whoa....

nice hike  Sucess!

Only went twice up Islip back when I was a San Gabriel peak freak. It still is a great little peak with nice views of its higher neighbors.
