Not sure if it was worth the 4 hours drive each way; but it was very nice.

We ended up leaving around 6:30AM (from Santa Monica).  We arrived at Mahogany Camp around 12:00; and began hiking by 1:00.  The wind was absolutely insane.  I'm from Florida and have seen some serious storms and wind.  However, this was the strongest wind I've ever encountered.  On the ridge before Telescope Pk....it had to have been a constant 70-80 mph.  

The distance was 6.2 miles from Mahogany.  We were able to do this in about 3.5 hours.  Views were amazing.  

Camping at Mahogany would have been great; except the wind was just relentless.  Anything you sat down, would blow away.  It was cold (45 degrees by 8:00pm with a 40 mph wind).  You couldn't talk or hear.  You couldn't start a fire (even if you could....only a fool would do it in this wind).   So....we ended up hitting the tents by 9:30.  

......and no, I have no clue how to place pictures in-line in this post.  It's a mystery

Nice. Did you see the graffiti on Telescope?

The camp pic is the only link that pointed to a file to use the [img] tag. The others are just links,  which result in a scaled version of their respective pic @ 280x186. They are still just links, but I changed the scale to match the camp pic. You can fix the others by using a link with the same structure as the camp pic: "https://......blahblah..........IMG_0113.JPG". The part in bold is what the others are missing, the actual file name. Then use "[img]link[/img]", without the quote marks, to make them inline images. On this forum you click Img once to open the tag, and then again after you have typed in the link to close it. Or just manually type it.

Or just click Attach File beneath the text box and browse to your pic. Fairly easy and straightforward...

Great pictures. Looks like fun, except for the wind.  Too bad you couldn't enjoy the camping.

Did you talk with anyone that came up from Shortys Well?

Wanted to know the water situation at Hanaupah Spring

No...only saw a few people and it was so windy, we couldn't talk.  Don't know about Hanaupah Springs.
