Mountain Spring Area 4/20/2020
Today we have more cars at the trailhead.
Chollas are blooming.
Masked Maurice is here.
So is Jim.
John, show Maurice where we are going next!
Above Mountain Spring. Since we are higher than the desert floor flowers are still blooming.
Rest stop on old road.
Is this the original old road to San Diego?
Our next stop will be there. 3358.
Another healthy cholla.
Made it to the top.
Steve is relaxing.
Staying off the summit since it is again very windy.
Found this brand new SM.
However John is looking about 100 yards away for the mapís SM. None found.
Back at the New SM.
Since Jim took some other road, Maurice ended on other peak (3582) and Hersch kept it on road this is rest of our group.
Returning to the road.
This is not for low clearance vehicles.
Feeling like illegals running over the freeway.
All together off the wind.
