Snow in SoCal  Sucess!

Snow in Southern Cal in July. How great is that by itself. Hiked via Vivian Creek Trail. I love that kinda Shangri-La setting at around 7200' with the stream running through. Summited over Thanksgiving overnighter a year ago also.

Vivian Trail  Sucess!

This was one of the good wet years. We were spending a week at Forest Home Christain Camp and Conference Center. We took a day off to hike the Vivian trail from Forest Falls. I was 45 and my sons were ages 15 & 11. We started a little before 7 am. We reached the top before 1pm and made it back to the car by 5pm. There was plenty of opportunity to fill water bottles along the first half of the way. The first mile or so the trail was a little steeper with loose rocks. The rest of the trail was a more pleasent walk.

SGW is a Different World from LA  Sucess!

Have climbed from South Fork (Dry and Dollar Lakes) and Aspen Grove. South Fork is unlike anything in SoCal during a wet year. Will try it next from Vivian.

My brother and I went up Vivian Creek and enjoyed the top for the first time. Longer, but fairly straightforward day hike.

San G via Fish Creek  Sucess!

A long, long walk but entirely worth it. I think this trail is way underrated. I felt as though I had the entire mountain to myself!

Cold Summer Night on Top  Sucess!

I've climbed this mountain several times throughout the years. This was the first time I attempted the grand loop though, starting from Vivian Creek, then descending down through Dry Lake to South Fork, then making my way up Dollar Lake, exiting out of Momyer Trail. Great experience, highly recommend this backpacking route.

Vivien Creek fave...  Sucess!

I have climbed this mountain many times, spring and fall. I have even used crampons over the top ice fields. That was fun! I would really like to do a severe winter stay with all the gear along. And, try some technical climbing on the Jepson north face when it's all snowed in...

South Fork  Sucess!

My wife and I started out at the south fork trail, we camped at dry lake the first night and summited on the second day. We spent the second night near dollar lake and hiked out the next morning. Fun trip.

South Fork Trail  Sucess!

Climbed Ol' Greyback with my Ol' Buddy CBUELOW. Camped the night before at High Meadow Spring Trail Camp in windy and cold conditions. Not much water there. Stashed our packs at Dollar Lake Saddle and beelined to Ol'Greyback the next morning. This would be the first of four peaks that day. The night before we knocked out Alto Diablo Peak from our camp.

Dollar Lake Saddle  Sucess!

1st of 4 peaks that day with Ol' Walsher. Hiked over from High Meadow Spring trail camp, left our packs at Dollar Lake Saddle and headed straight to the top. Windy and cold at the summit with clouds obscuring the views south and east. San Jacinto was barely peeking above the clouds to the south. After eating a sandwich and signing in, we made a beeline for Jepson.

Great summit

Did this as a training hike, and breaking in new boots. Got huge heal blisters by mile 3 but continued on anyway. Nice challenging hike.
