F***ing amazing footage!  One: what a battery pack your camera has.  Two:  your daughter was very patient before wanting to know what the H was going on.  Three: what was going on?  Who was that group?  They hiked at such a steady pace.  A well disciplined company sized patrol.  Maybe a new military recruiting program?

Wow, who knew that many kids were into geology. Man, I wish my college classes were like that. The closest thing was AP Bio in high school. We were suppose to spend the night at Lake Fulmor in the San Jacintos but due to budget cuts it was only a day outing. Come to think of it, that was my first hike. We hiked up the stream into the foothills and crossed several logs. I've always wanted to repeat that hike but the area is closed now.

Nice video.
It looked like the Trojan Marching Band on a camp or something ..

Reminds me of an SC Engineering Geology field-trip we took to Landers back in '92.  There were only 20 of us ..
We rode an old yellow schoolbus down a dry riverbed and ended up embedded in an off-road motorcycle race.  
Eventually the bus couldn't go anymore ..


(going by memory, could have been just east of pictured location)

We were glad to get off as the bus had no offroad suspension.  We humped a couple of miles and saw the fault propagation of the Landers Quate and measured the distance 2 ton boulders were hurled by the vertical accelleration of the surface fissure.

I took a Physical Geography lab class at Cerritos College this spring semester and went on a 3 day camping trip to Owens Valley this past April. Was pretty cool saw Mount Whitney, the Sierra Nevada, Convict lake, Mono Lake and various other geological sites along the way. Was very cool, the whole bus ride there I couldnt take my eyes of the jagged granite peaks of the high sierra, would love to go backpacking up there someday.......the best part of the trip was it didn't cost me anything other than the regular class fee Very Happy

Very Happy  I just bought a film/slide scanner. Here's a shot of myself with Baldy in the background:



Snow is thin here on the ridgetop, but it was thick elsewhere; a new storm came in the night before we left. As we were skiing out, we had 3-4" of snow on our shoulders, it was really coming down!

These are all I can find of this great trip. It was a 3 day x-country ski trip: we took the Mountain High ski lift up, got real strange looks from the downhill skiers while we stood in line for the lift with our packs and funny skis Smile Then we skied further east down the ridge. Two vegetarian friends took UNCOOKED beans to eat: I warned 'em. My rations were simpler: cognac and  tinned ham, instant oatmeal, etc.  Wink  We had parked one car near Mountain High, and another in a Wrightwood neighborhood that would let us ski down the side of a steep spur of Blue Ridge from our camp right to this car. Fun! Steep! The uphill leg was in snow almost up to the crotch; the nubee I was with thought it was too hard and decided it would be easier to walk out.  When he took a step off the skis, he plunged in up to his waist  Laughing He put the skis back on.







It really looked like this as the sun set:

It's awesome. just going up to see a completely different world is amazing. Nothing can replace going down the Devils Backbone or any other ridge after a storm, at sunset. The clouds, etc.

An on-line friend of mine complained about the photo Wikipedia was using for their Mt Baden-Powell entry, so I mentioned I had a better one.  He edited the article and - voilą! - my photo is now there instead.

I bet there are a lot of Wikipedia articles that could be better illustrated by us folks on this forum.

This is only acceptable to Wikipedia if your photo are licensed Creative Commons.

Lol, but that "Park Service" map is totally bogus.  It shows the trail up from Dawson Saddle (which is inaccessible due to road closure) calls it the "Scout Trail."  There's no mention of this little thing called the PCT, either.   Laughing

A few forums I'm on have a "post yer latest picture" thread. I figured since I'm in the mountains a few times a week, but a trip report isn't always appropriate, this might be a good idea. Excellent for keeping track of conditions as well.

Drove up R39 to East Fork to GMR to GRR up to San Antonio Falls Road, figuring I might go for a climb up in Icehouse as well, though it didn't happen.


GRR


Sugarloaf



Two of the tight turns between SA Falls Road and Icehouse Canyon




Looking into Icehouse, with Magical Kimchi buttress in view


Ah, so that's why I have understeer...


Got this sticker in a recent order from Backcountry. GOtta take some cool pics with it sometime.

Not quite, the picture was taken at the edge of the cliff, a bit West of Wright Mtn.
