Nice Hike  Sucess!

Hiked Devil's Slide Trail from Humber Park, out and back in six hours, with a novice hiker from work. A nice hike with a few tongues of snow over the trail on the Tahquitz Peak Trail.

Cold but great!  Sucess!

Above 8,000 feet on the Devil's Slide Trail the trail was completely covered in snow. We did not have crampons but took our time on the steep slopes to reach the summit.

Another awesome night hike!  Sucess!

Started at 7:10pm hiking with my 14yr old daughter. It was definitely turning to dark by Saddle Jnct. Got back to the car at Humber before midnight. We used headlamps for the hike down for better speed.

From Humber  Sucess!

Nice short hike. Had time to spare afterwards for a beer and burger in Idyllwild.

The IRS won't look for me up here  Sucess!

Not in this weather anyway ...

No views as a spring blizzard was gaining strength through the day, but a great day in the hills nevertheless.

Another winter day hike to Tahquitz Peak  Sucess!

Penelope and I hiked the South Ridge Trail on January 15, 2007 all the way from the High Castle area of Idyllwild (due to winter road closure). Since we left second car at Humber Park, we crossed the Tahquitz Bowl to Devils Slide and Humber Park on some deep and in places fairly frozen snow (no crampons needed). Another good day in our neigborhood

Fun, fun, fun...  Sucess!

Easy little hike from Tahquitz Valley. Great views from the top, we could see Mt. Baldy and Santiago Peak. Got a Squirrel Card from the Fire Watch volunteer.

Fun little hike  Sucess!

I really enjoyed this hike. I liked the lookout tower. This represented the breaking of a climbing fast that I had been experiencing, and It reminded me of what i am missing out on

South Ridge Trail  Sucess!

Enjoyable climb with the exception of the flies. They simply laughed off my insect repellent lotion (spray is probably better). Failed on my bid to add Lily Rock. I'll try it again on the correct switchback.

Too many times to count  Sucess!

I volunteered here for two seasons at the fire lookout. I'll go back after my books are published. Great hike from any direction. Excellent views. The sunrises and sunsets are more than spectacular from this vantagepoint.

Great little hike, very windy at the top! PSB baby!

muggy  Sucess!

Quick hike up Devils Slide, beautiful trail, just gray and muggy out though! The desert divide area looks real promising. I have to get out that way next year. Especially want to do Antsell.

South Ridge Trail many times  Sucess!

I hiked up this peak for the first time in January of 1984. There was only a little bit of snow due to the dry winter. I hiked it several more times in the eighties. The last time was in December of 1999 by myself. I love this place!

Via South Ridge Trail, March 16th, 2006  Sucess!

Penelope May and I snow-shoed up the South Ridge trail from the Highcastle area of Idyllwild (due to winter road closure). Wonderful snowy views of Garner Valley and the desert peaks along the way. About three feet of snow at the summit lookout hut.

Route Climbed: Long Route Date Climbed: July 2004  Sucess!

3 friends and I did this nice trad route in about 3 hours. The Mummy Chimney sucked... It was a great day and in addition to the great climbing there were LOTS of laughs.

Route Climbed: South Ridge Trail Date Climbed: Jan 16, 2005  Sucess!

Started up the trail at 10:00am and reached the top about 1:20pm. Crisp and cool hike with very little snow on the trail. Uper sections of the switchbacks were icy in spots. We had the lookout to ourselves on a beautiful clear day. Views to the ocean and out 100 miles. Cold NE winds made standing on the north side of the firetower tough but the SW and lee sides of the tower were warm and sunny. Made it back to the truck in less than 2 hours.
