Chasing snow in San Gorgonio wilderness

Howdy All :)

Last Friday, Sister Sally, Miracle Marilyn and I went up Forsee to Anderson peak.

We started going XC up the ridge a bit below the turn off to Jackstraw springs.

Guess whose foot prints? Hint -- broken left ankle :wink:

Looking towards Big Bear lake.





Image

Beautiful, pristine snow.

Marilyn heading up to the San Bernardino divide.

Lunch on top of Anderson looking towards San Gorgonio -- can't beat that view :lol:

Yesterday, Marilyn and I went up west San Bernardino peak. Starting going XC a bit above the wooden bench.

View of San Jacinto (my home range) from west San Bernardino peak.

View of San Bernardino divide from the peak.

View of San Gorgonio.

Apparently, some other folks had been up :wink:

Zoomed in view of San Gorgonio

Zoomed in views on our descent.

Back on the trail near the wooden bench -- gorgeous green valley.

Nice shots Ellen. I especially like the ones with the almost ominously low hanging clouds. That's a lot of snow for the end of May!
