This hike had to be the most beautiful of the hikes I’ve done in Socal. Period. It felt like I was in the Sierras, mountain meadows and all. I’m starting to adjust to the altitude of these longer and higher hikes but this one still kicked my butt for sure. The last rock scramble was a challenge but I sped up it and lighting speed and pushed through the fatigue. Boy was it worth it! Amazing views with great friends. Can’t beat a day like that. Can’t wait for Gorgornio!
