I don’t know what happened to me the other day with part 1 of this trip report.
For some reason, I just could not put events in order and tried the toss it out
there approach to blogging.
Today I will try to put things in some semblance of order.
This is where I have made 2 previous hikes. Here are the links:
This is just an interesting stair step like ridge which appears to go all the way the side of Mt. San Jacinto. From previous experience, I expected high winds and much steep climbing.
As blogged in part 1, on this day I vowed to make it easier upon myself by following the many animal trails in the area to reach my destination. I also was not hear to prove anything, only to get higher up that ridge line, anyway that I could.
So my goal this day was to hike cross-country to reach that road cut into the mountain side, the one that runs right to left, from the base of the hill, and ends
on the left end of that ridgeline, near the very tiny pole there in your picture.
A lonely barrel cactus living on a steep hillside, amongst the grasses and rocks.
Here is a short video that I made while sitting on that middle post in the photo.
Folks, there is a lot more which will be up online tomorrow. And as promised,
I have a real surprise up there that I found.
Be well and don’t forget to come back for the conclusion to this day’s hike and
