Potato mountain hike MT. Baldy

This area was badly burned about ten years back but is almost completely recovered. I researched it a little and found this. Remember, it is ALMOST completely recovered!. This is a short day hike you can take the wife and kids and pic nick on the bluffs above the city. Hikers, for all you do, this spud's for you. Potato Mountain, which sits above Claremont, offers the hiker great clear-day vistas of the San Gabriel Valley, eastern Los Angeles County, and parts of San Bernardino County. The 3,360-foot, russet-brown mountain, is a refuge from the busy metropolis and its far-flung suburbs. Splitting Potato Mountain is the Evey Canyon, watered by a little creek bubbling through an oak woodland and a tangle of vines and gooseberries. Unfortunately, a devastating 2002 wildfire scorched Evey Canyon, as well as other nearby canyons and hillsides above Claremont, and thoroughly roasted Potato Mountain. Yes, the land is recovering but don't expect the pre-fire pastoral scene when you hike Evey Canyon. Herman Garner saved the canyon from home development and gave it to Pomona College (one of the Claremont Colleges) Department of Biology with the condition that it remain pristine. Herman Garner Biological Preserve is used today for student field research, and for long walks away from it all.

Day hike up mt San Antonio & some mountain sheep close up
I welcome people to join me from time to time and these guys showed up. It was a great group of people and although the trail was a killer, it took a few out, it was filled with beauty, wild life, action, fun and laughter. While on my way down the bowl trail, about a mile past the ski hut, I even ran into two young women dressed for the beach and looking for THE BRIDGE TO NOWHERE, I thought they were messing around but they were serious. I told them, they were off by a good 3 canyons, a 45 minute drive, then a 3 hour hike! It was their first time hiking

Crystal Lake to Heaton Flats
This is a path I have wanted to do for a long time but never found someone willing to try, until now. On route, we spotted a bear going over the saddle at Windy Gap, prior to getting out the camera. We saw signs of bear all over, they are awake and on the move. It seams real winters are a thing of the past for our state and the bears have adapted to short cat naps. We both had huge blisters on the forward pads of our feet but only Martin got zapped by poison oak this time. It seems after about 40 plus times of getting it myself, I have a little immunity built up, knock on wood! Cheers guys.
