Mt. Baldy. 7/14/2014
We are starting our A16 Three Peaks Challenge with Mount San Antonio (Baldy).
Off road on a trail.
Off trail on a ridge.
Looks like that we are separating into three groups. Group 1: John P. and Kerry, Group A: Me, Susan and Wit.
Group A1 is: John and Hersch coming up.
It is hot and humid we need some rest.
It is steep and way up to go.
Almost back on trail.
Before Baldy we are going up to Mt. Harwood first.
There is no register here anymore but the Geo station is still here.
Weather changed rapidly. Started to rain and it is cold. We are switching to our rain gear.
John at the top. Rest of our group is waiting down off the wind.

Hersch in his rain gear, he is like a walking lighting rod.
Hersch looks happy.
We are looking for John. Somehow we lost him.
John is somewhere on that other ridge and taking Mt. Baldy Village trail down.
At Baldy Bowl.
Our group relaxing at Sierra Club ski lodge.
Some flowers on a trail.
Still it is a long way down.
And here is John, reunited with us.
