Summits: 1340

March 24 – April 9 » Lower Peaks hikes (11 total) and Sespe Hot Springs

The last few weeks I’ve spent a lot of time visiting family in Orange County and Palm Desert, and I managed to squeeze in 11 summit hikes from the Lower Peaks List plus a 3 day bike and backpack into Sespe Hot Springs. The summit hikes were all very scenic and the Sespe Hot Springs is becoming one of my favorite local spots in SoCal. I had visited last year and the amazing setting and thermal pools have become a special place to me.
