Mt. San Jacinto 7/20/2015
This is our second peak hike from A16 3-Peak Challenge. We are taking Marion Mt. trail up.
Traditional first stop.
The question is weather. Is it going to rain and thunder?
If weather gets tough only real men go hiking.
Our second stop. John and Larry will separate from us and do Mt. St. Ellens 10,160í instead.
We are continuing up. Weather is getting better.
The brush switchbacks.
Break at the campsite.
Made it to the saddle. We donít trust these mileage signs.
Almost there. Weather is nice.
At the top. The sign is missing again.
So here is the benchmark.
Our group at the top with A16 flags.
At the cabin.
It is green here.
Clouds are coming from below.
This part going down is usually hot. Overall todayís weather was perfect.
Our complete happy group.
