Monument Peak July 2011

Vicki and I decided to get in a bit of extra “elevation acclimatization” for the following weekend’s multi-day backpacking trip by heading up into the local San Diego mountains for a day hike. We drove up to the Laguna Mountain area, arriving at dawn, and parked at a pullout on highway S1 (Sunrise Highway) just west of the Laguna Mountain Campground (National Forest Pass required to park there).

San Bernardino Peak July 2011

Vicki and I left San Diego at 3:30am and arrived at the San Bernardino Peak Trailhead in Angeles Oaks just after dawn, ready to begin a three-day, two-night, action-packed backpacking weekend in the San Gorgonio Wilderness.
