Hey, where is everyone?

I'm here

Since you asked, I posted a trip report about Florida mountains. Please don't laugh too hard.

Same here.  Will try tonight.  Here's a hint:  It's a special 'themed mission' to Mt. Hawkins!  None too exciting, but my wife and I both got some nice pics.

Only one trip to the forest....going up West Twin Peaks ridge from Cogswell. Still a use path available to elevation 4000 . It was a fogout LOL. I turned around for sure when I heard some animal noise coming from somewhere in the deep wilderness. Ended up coming down the wrong ridge/eastern edge of Station Fire, but knew how to live that down.

This be the place


Wrong ridge down...but an excellent one for a canyoneer....with a rope.

Right turn....at least headed the right direction...

I did a couple of lower peaks this week, Mendenhall (quite trashy) and Jupiter Mountain up near Green Valley. Hard to believe the Angeles National Forest goes so far north. I doubt either are worthy of a full report. Here is a hyperlapse video of the ascent of Jupiter, using beta software from Microsoft. My raw footage was not very good because I was holding the camera in front me the whole time. A mounted camera would probably produce much better video.

Been doing small stuff. Been sick. Wanna go do some TR worthy stuff once I'm better. Cool

Hmmm.. Did a Valley Forge backpack in May.  Hiked Trail Canyon in April almost to new Tom Lucas but didn't want to fight a poison oak wall to get there...

Mike P,

I think it has promise in certain situations. The free beta version puts a watermark on it. I hope the final version is inexpensive.
