Consolation Prize  Sucess!

Beautiful day in the San Gabe's, with some fresh spring snow. So much snow in fact, that our original plan to do Ontario was thwarted with deep snow (3+foot drifts after the saddle...all we had were trail runners), so opted for the less snowy south-facing ridge up to Timber. With Zoe. Fun mellow day.

T1  Sucess!

I was lazy and just hiked to the summit of Timber from Icehouse Canyon and turned around. A warm, sunny day.

Three Ts  Sucess!

I assume it would be a nice view, but pretty misty while I was there

3 Tees from Icehouse Cyn  Sucess!

Went from Icehouse Canyon to Thunder and then stopped by Timber mountain on the way back. I was feeling it by then. The sign at the summit is still there. Not much in the way of views from Timber mountain though. Too much timber...

Nice Sign at the Top  Sucess!

There's a nice sign at the top, hopefully it won't get vandalized or stolen like everything else in Los Angeles.

Icehouse Canyon route  Sucess!

We were running low on time after reaching the saddle via Icehouse Canyon and decided to summit the closest peak. Only saw a few people along the way. Nice views at the top, and the last section of the climb is a great leg workout!

Icehouse  Sucess!

Winter ascent.

Snowless Spring  Sucess!

3T's from Icehouse and return same way. Only snow/ice was on north side of Cucamonga visible from the saddle and 3T's. Inadvertent shortcut down Timber's southerly ridge led back to the saddle.

Icehouse Canyon to Timber Mtn.  Sucess!

The date may indicate it's still winter, but conditions in the San Gabriels say it's spring. We made slow progress up to Icehouse Saddle before opting to climb up Timber Mountain instead of our original intended destination, Cucamonga Peak, due to it being 3:45pm and sunset occurring around 6:30pm at this time of year. We signed the register at the summit and made our way back down in a scant 1.25 hours.

Three T's from Icehouse  Sucess!

Three T's is a sweet hike to some of the highest peaks in the San Gabriels. Nice view.

Just before a storm...  Sucess!

Hiked this peak from Comanche for the second day of a backpacking trip. Truly growing to love these mountains.

Three T's Traverse  Sucess!

7 hours round-trip. Not much snow yet except on the north faces.

Mountains Gorgeous with Snow  Sucess!

Went up to Timber in the early parts of spring and there was still a lot of snow and ice on the trail. The trail was beautiful as the mountains all had snow still on them. Definitely worth doing in early spring/later winter.

Rainy Day  Sucess!

Had the day free before catching my flight back home to Michigan, so I decided to try something easier than Iron Mountain, which I failed miserably to summit the previous weekend. Made the summit right at the stroke of noon and was thinking about continuing on to Telegraph, but it looked like some rain was coming so I headed back via Chapman Trail & got caught in a torrential downpour. The rain lasted almost back to the parking lot & I didn't have dry clothes to change into. No matter......it was a nice hike.
