Hello everyone! My name is Gabriel and I'm 35 years of age. I grew up around the San Gabriel Valley for the most part of my life. I always enjoyed going up to our local mountains with my cousins. When we were in our young teens we didn't know how to prepare very well. As time went by we learned better ways to backpack and were able to venture out farther than our local mountains. I took some time off from the wilderness but just getting back into it. I'm still healthy and have great opportunities to get back out again. I look forward to finding more information on these threads and hope to explore new lands and meet more friends.

Sincerely,

 Gabe

This is about 25 miles from my house on top of Scotchman's Peak looking down on the town of Clark Fork where the Clark Fork River enters Lake Pend Oreille. This critter took my lunch while I was taking other pictures.

A picture like that is worth a lunch. Thanks for posting.

Nice to meet you and a very nice photo. I'm hoping I can purchase some land in Idaho one day. I'm currently in Southern California.

Hi my name is Robert and I love the outdoors in general. Since I was a kid I was always fishing, camping, hiking, and swimming. Now I am pretty focussed on hiking and last year hiked in Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks and have tried to do at least one hike a week. Hiking is a great workout by the way.

I work in a boring office that I am going to leave this summer after I take my vacation. I love to travel and have seen Europe a few times, Mexico, and a lot of the US. I love beer too but then again who doesn't?

I am mostly hiking the area around Mount Baldy but eventually will move out to other areas. Any advice or suggestions are always appreciated.

Hi, I'm Courtney.  I currently live in the South Bay but my heart belongs to Pasadena.  I started hiking about three years ago after moving to Pasadena from elsewhere (with crappy hiking) and I do it now as often as I can. So far the San Gabriels are my favorite but I am working on branching out.  Really steep trails freak me out and I am terrified of falling off the trail.  I probably should buy some hiking poles to help with that.

Several redheads on this forum!

More experience (i.e. more repititions) will help with that even better.

Personally, I think hiking poles can cause more problems than help, but it depends on your experience in using them.

Hi folks!

I've been lurking here for a long time taking advantage of all the great info and trip reports that are posted. Thought I'd actually say hello. I'm Andrew, I'm 27, and I've been hiking in the San Gabriels for about 3 years now. Many of my trips were inspired by posts made here - so thanks! Hopefully I'll have something to contribute in return soon.

Hi,
My name is Jon Funk and I love heading into the mountains. Turning 36 this year. I've been checking in with this site to gather info on conditions or new ideas for exploring, even techniques and gear tips, for the past few years now. I saw a face I recognized on my last trip up Baldy, Tekewin, (How was your day on Baldy?) and decided I needed to be a contributor here not just a user. I have been inspired and enlightened by all the great explorers and adventurers here. Thank you all.
My favorite local peak is Baldy. I really enjoy the Register Ridge/ Ski Hut loop. I have the San Antonio Ridge and coming up from Wrightwood on my bucket list. I love the solitude of the ridge, Harwood and the chance to see bighorn sheep.
I've got three kids and love taking them on adventures too. My oldest is 10 and we have enjoyed backpacking and hiking together. He did Baldy via Ski Hut trail when he was 8. We are planning a San Gorgonio trip this summer and hopefully Whitney the year after.
I'm excited to finally be a member of this community of explorers!

Hey, Jon Funk. What a cool name! Welcome to the forum. It was nice meeting you on the trail.

FYI, my trip sucked that day. I was moving slowly and got a calf cramp at the ski hut, where I turned around. Hope you had a good trip and look forward to your reports, especially the ridge if you cross Gunsight Notch.

Tekewin, Sorry to hear about your day on Baldy. Hope that leg recovered quick. I had a good trip. Climbed to South side of the bowl. Snow was already pretty thin. Crampons and axe were just for show that day. Glad I got some action in before it's all gone. Someday I need to head over to Gorgonio. Need a whole day to do that peak though.

Hello...

I love the SGM and I've been in and around them my whole life.  I'm coming back from a long backpacking hiatus and looking for people who enjoy the local area as much as I do.  I have over 30 years of camping/hiking experience mostly off of 39 in the East and West Forks.  Looking forward to sharing on this forum and hearing from all of you here!!!
