Double Peak 7/23/2018
Since there is an excessive heat warning everywhere we are hiking closer to the coast today. We will be hot, hopefully not excessively.
There are cities around everywhere.
We could drive up here if we wanted. Jim did.
Top of Double Peak.
Our group today.
From the Double Peak we made it to San Marcos Peak. We are getting excellent cell phone reception here.
The dose of radio waves is making us happy.
Found a big treasure chest.
New developments are everywhere.
Each of these markers says START. Hmm?
Short break before we go for more.
Road crossing. Will horse walk backwards here?
Another peak, another comm. tower. This one is called Mount Whitney not to be confused with the real one without the comm. tower.
There is a next one to go to.
Big houses with big views.
This one is Franks Peak.
Made it back and in partial shade. Temp. is getting into 90s.
