A possible Saturday Skyline

Howdy All :)

The Palm Springs weather doesn't look too bad for Saturday -- a low of 74 and high of 95. Anyone interested?

I would love nothing more than inviting myself along on a hike with you :) , although I expect I would slow your pace.

But I will not be down to Palm Springs until October/November sometime. And besides 95 degrees !! - "I'm Melting!" (my son has been watching The Wizard of Oz :) )

I am still awaiting my opportunity to conquer Skyline. Only reason I've never done it is just because I've never had anyone to go with. If you don't mind a first-timer, I would really like to go.

Hey michael, after our discussion about that, I just had to laugh at my bad advice when they had to stop the Mt. Baldy Run To The Top on Saturday at about 8:45 a.m. due to rain and lightning! Like those weather guys, I'm right some of the time!

I ran up San Gorgonio this morning, saw clouds starting to form once I got back down, so it's true some of the time!

I'll be out of town this weekend or I'd join you guys. Have fun!

Howdy All :)

The weather for Saturday and Sunday is still looking good 8) Tomorrow's high is 98 and low is 75. Sunday is similiar.

The MeetUp group is doing a moonlight Skyline/C2C Sunday AM starting at about 1 AM. The full moon is Monday (howling).

I'll likely start around 4:30 AM tomorrow.

Howdy Patrick :)

Sent you a PM 8)

Howdy Scott :)

Would love to meet and hike with you -- let me know when you're going to be down. October and November are much better months to hike Skyline.

I just can't resist the chance to go up before the tram closure.

Regarding the weather -- that's why I'm starting early. I want to be at 4 K when the sun comes up. Thanks to my Swedish genes, I melt in the heat just like the wicked witch: "And your little dog too!!!"

if anyone is going up sunday, keep an eye on that meetup group. I read some questions people were asking...seems some people think they can do the hike because they were in the military. we know how that's turned about before...
