    Took San Gabriel Ridge to Guadalupe Ridge then followed it west until I could come down on top of Fat Man's Pass. Went through then east to the tunnel and through it. From there went under the bridge and took the wash all the way down to the rock house. Picked up the San Gabriel Ridge route from there and took it back to the car.

    I wanted to give Joe Bartels a shout out. So I thought I better do it from a trail. Joe :yr: . It was one year ago today Joe wore out the therapists clmbing up and down the stairwells of the rehab facility. He also passed his swallow test that day. He was released to go home. Only 4 weeks after a horrific fall while hiking. Fitting release date as this is one of Joe's favorite holidays. A little over a month later (8/8/17) he climbed his old favorite Piestewa Peak.Less then three weeks after that (8/26/17) he climbed Humphreys. So far in 2018 Joe has hiked 854 miles with an AEG of 321,907. Way to go Joe! Cheers to you my friend!! :app: :y:

    In anticipation of my pending penalty in the AEG deprivation chamber, I decided to grab a few feet while I can. I stopped a couple of times to set up a proper night exposure to share on the social mediums. Because if not for the likes from people I don't know and will never meet, really, what the hell are we doing any of this for!? :-k :-$

    a rare saturday afternoon hike with fletch
    wanted something a little longer today
    went up san gabriel, west on guadalupe ridge to eagle pass, down national, through hidden valley
    cut up to guadalupe ridge from hidden valley on one of the use trails, then back down to san gabriel
    both of us like all of guadalupe ridge
    neither of us like the dirt road, so this combo was a nice variation on what we normally do
    hit los taquitos for some street tacos on the way home :)

    met fletch for our monday morning hike
    started from 40th and san gabriel, but went over to beverly canyon first
    did a loop from there with our usual trails
    less aeg, more on desert classic, slightly longer
    not my favorite version but something different
    cool at first, warmed up nicely
    had fun as always with fletch

    monday morning workout hike with fletch
    after recording it on route scout four times, today's track gave me a consensus on mileage and elevation gain
    nice amount of aeg for the mileage
    very little level ground
    saw two people the entire hike
    good breeze, some high clouds coming in

    Young Man's Loop
    monday morning hike with fletch
    started at 40th & san gabriel, took desert classic over to pima
    checked out the lack of progress on the trailhead
    up marcos de niza, down san gabriel ridge, west on desert classic, up young man, back on guadalupe ridge and down san gabriel
    way too much on desert classic; we won't do that again
    it would be better to go up beverly canyon if we wanted some extra

    Larry said he wanted to go hiking :o so we arranged for a full rescue team in case he couldn't make it. Talked about a helicopter rescue a couple of times but managed to avoid it. Bombed through in record time. PCT guy needs a new alarm clock. Ran into a lizzard. But no gecko. Or tortoise. :(

    I hiked some trails I've never been on. No idea if I linked the right ones.

    San Gabriel-Guadalupe Ridge-Young Man
    fletch found an alternative to our traditional monday morning young man's loop [ gps route ]
    started at san gabriel & 40th street around 0750
    up san gabriel ridge, west on guadalupe ridge, down young man trail
    returned the same way
    much better elevation gain than anything from beverly canyon trailhead
    didn't think i would be too excited about going right back up young man, but it was fine
    might get us by until pima opens back up

    To hike
    Most popular access is from the San Gabriel Trailhead at San Gabriel Ave and 40th Place.

    From I-10 and Elliot head west on Elliot to 44th Street. Turn right on 44th St and take the second left on to E San Gabriel Ave. Follow Gabriel to 40 Place. There is a right notch or jag in the street but it goes through. Parking is only allowed on the west side (mountain side) of 40th Place. Parking is 5am to 8pm only!

    Simply head north passing Western Star. When you pass the house turn right on the Desert Classic Trail and follow a short distance to the noticeable maintenance road going up the ridge.
