Summits: 1340

May 9 – 11 » Opening Weekend in the San Gabriels

Officially the opening weekend for most trails after the Covid-19 shutdown, the Los Angeles Crest Highway and just about every turnout and parking lot was packed. Still, it was easy enough to escape the crowds with just a few minutes by foot on any trail. Along with Christina Lam, we hiked a handful of peaks and located an old plane wreck, a C119 crash from 1966. It was a gorgeous weekend…

Saturday: Mt Hoyt, Devil’s Peak attempt (failed due to thick brush)

Sunday: Mt Williamson, Pleasant View Ridge, C119 crash site

Sunday: Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, and Sadie Hawkins
