Hike by Road and Trail to Mt Islip (W6 CT-010) 21 July 2017

The Angeles Crest Highway is closed at Islip Saddle (6650 feet), due to a sink hole about 10 miles further on. I always enjoy walking this road when it is closed to vehicles, several times having walked the 5.5 miles up to Dawson Saddle (7900 feet) and back. 354 more words

New Page Additions April through June 2017.

Below is a list of links to new and updated pages between April and the end of June 2017. I’ve found the changes regarding recording the hikes I do to be manageable and I anticipate being able to continue to create or update a page for each hike I do which provides a track map and a route description (at a minimum) for the foreseeable future. 562 more words
