Mt Josephine, Angeles NF

October 26th, 2007 by

I would like to note that this hike marks the 4th anniversary of my hikes.txt hiking log. The log doesn’t note *all* the hikes I’ve ever been on, but it’s most of them. (I started it with my first pair of real hiking boots. However, my first real hike as an adult was Mt Monadnock, when I was 21 or 22 or so. Thanks Jake!). Anyway, this hike put me at about the 325 recorded miles hiked mark. “It’s a start!” Here’s to well more miles than that in the future…

Anyway, hiking! This was a surprise 8 mile hike up Mt Josephine (5558′, 1900′ of gain), via the Mt Josephine Fire Road. (A surprise because the guidebook listed it as 6 miles, trip #35 in Trails of the Angeles). I went with Erin, Ben, and his friend Matt. There had been rain in Pasadena the prior day, which meant we had fresh snow nearer the top of this hike!

Part of the way to Fish Forks, Angeles NF

October 24th, 2007 by

On the lovely day of April 4, 2007, I decided I want to go on a hike. I went with Erin, Gretchen, Joe and Ben on a just over 6 mile hike , on part of the Fish Forks Trails (hike 88 in Trails of the Angeles). The part we did had only 900′ or so of gain.

Sturtevant Falls from Chantry Flats

March 18, 2007 we (Joe, Erin, and I) went to Sturtevant Falls, Angeles NF, starting from Chantry Flat , which we were excited to revisit, as it had been closed for several years. The hike wasn’t too long, about 4.5 miles in length, and about 1k’ of climbing total.

just a bit down the canyon…

Jen took charge! And had a ski weekend up in Lake Tahoe from February 8 to 11, 2007. It was super fun, and she did a wonderful job. And I got to go snowshoeing for the first time ever!
