First Outing of the New Year

So what's going to be everyone's first adventure of 2014? I'm off to do some hiking on Santa Cruz Island with my girls tomorrow. Kind of a New Years Day tradition for us. What about y'all? Take a camera and post pics of your exploits so I can drool over all the cool places I need to visit over the next 12 months.

Happy New Year Eis Pirates. Stay off the roads tonight. It's gonna be amateur hour. Shocked

Headed to Red Box and then down to Valley Forge with my daughter.  Majorly gnarly.  Bringing pickets, ice axes, helmets, and a Hello Kitty blanket with a sparkly princess magic wand.  Laughing

I always go on a New Years Day hike. Haven't made up my mind where yet, I shall see how the knee feels in the morning. Not much time left to hike, surgery date is Jan 16 and then I'm out for 8 weeks.
Thinking Islip from Crystal Lake area or Mt Wilson from Sierra Madre.
HikeUp

I'm hoping just to wake up sometime tomorrow. Hopefully in time to see the Thunderbirds fly over my house! Then bacon.
Taco

Probably something big with a rope and not enough gear. Laughing

I'm working the Rose Parade and then off to see Stanford beat Michigan State...!

Had a Mt Lowe hike planned....but got sick; so, I'm camped out on the couch, in my most comfortable pajamas Razz   Next up- Rose Bowl

I did a 9 mile hike from Aliso Canyon to the Top of the World in Laguna Beach.  Not exciting, more to burn calories and wake up the legs from holiday sloth and overeating.

Now to take down the lights and tree.

I ate bacon. Now wine.

I did Bell View Trail in Rancho Santa Margarita probably only went about 2 miles but there were a few steep sections and I carried my baby along. good views of Santiago peak in the Santa Ana's.

happy new year!

Happy New Year from Runyon Canyon

Did Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills for my New Year's morning hike...

Went up east ridge to high point, down to Mulholland, down main paved road to bottom, up bottom of canyon and middle ridge to high point, back down paved road to bottom, then up east ridge and paved road to high point again, and back down paved road...

Not up to SGMDF criteria I know, but more than 2000 feet of gain in a popular dog park just a mile from my front door...can't beat that for New Year's morning hike, no driving required!

Thanks to all for this wonderful forum and the great members...and best for the New Year...

Where's the pics of HikeUp eating bacon? I wanted to see that.

Super nice pic, Uncle Rico.

I just got back and town and signed in here to figure out where I was going to go tomorrow morning Smile Still not sure yet, but can't wait to get out there.

I have to get the car back by 10am, so I'm thinking maybe Echo Mountain, incline trail-sam merrill loop. Although, Sam Merill is like the mecca of Resolutioners. Every new year, the first week of January tends to be jam packed, then by week two it tends to taper off...

No you didn't. It wasn't pretty.

Did RazorBack in Eaton loaded off of Cooks Champagne at 11:50PM on 12/31. Went with a couple of friends. No gear other than the flip flops on our feet. It was awesome! We made it up to the 15th pool!

Seriously - Started the New Year off with a run with 40+ other people along the Rose parade Route. We start at the end at 5AM, run to the floats, look at floats and return. Group breakfast at Conrads on lake after. I recommend their Lake Cakes (Oatmeal Pancakes)  A great way to start the new year.

Jan 2 went on a nice trail run in Hahamogna.

Happy New Year my fellow San Gabe Mountain aficionados

Mid-week New Year sucks...  finally getting out tomorrow, going to check out the south ridge leading up to Fox and Condor Peaks. No idea if it has been maintained at all since the fire, will post a report tomorrow.

Where the hell is winter?   Sad

You didn't hear?   Cancelled.  I think it was the tea party.  Or global warming.

Re: First Outing of the New Year

My first outing of the year, on Jan. 2, included some cross-country exploring around the Rubio Canyon watershed. It's an old stand-by, and I still haven't been to every nook and cranny.

West Fuji


Castle Canyon and Inspiration Point


Castle Spur and Pt. 4668


Muir Peak and West Fuji
