Back at the trailhead. Pine Mt in the large mountain behind us, Baldy or West Baldy can be seen in the distance (SB will know which one it is)
My favorite route up Baldy (for now). Such views.
From your mileage, it looks like you started at Guffy and the gate was closed.
Looks like everyone including the dog had a great time.
Good luck with the group on C2C.
