Every Southern Californian can point out the white topped Mt. Baldy — actually it’s real name is Mt. San Antonio. Baldy is a SoCal icon that stands out boldly as a snow-covered backdrop for much of the year. At 10,064 feet above sea level, the snow often sticks around well into June.
This was a training hike up for Yosemite later in September. Took a friend and started from the ski hut after we took the tram up. That saves 4 miles and 2,000 feet of elevation. It maybe cheating but I am ok with that.
