San Gorgonio July 2010

Vicki and I spent three nights backpacking in the San Gorgonio Wilderness over the July 4th weekend.  Here’s a summary:

On the first day we hiked in from the Fish Creek Trailhead and camped in Mineshaft Flat.

On the second day we climbed to the summit of San Gorgonio Mountain (elevation 11502 feet).  We glissaded down snow-filled chutes in July!  It was a lot of fun.

On day three we packed up camp and backpacked to Fish Creek Saddle, then hiked down to check out a very wet Dry Lake.

On the final day we hiked back out to the car.
