Parked at San Gabriel. Went west on Desert Classic for a short distance, then up the drainage on the west side of San Gabriel Ridge. Super fun, not brushy. I stayed in the drainage about halfway, then up to Guadalupe Ridge. Will stay in the drainage the entire way next time though.

West on Guadalupe Ridge, almost to the end, then dropped down to National on a good use trail just east of the weather station. East on National, then down Hidden Valley. Stayed in the drainage below Hidden Valley. A few spots through there had been getting brushy the last few months, so I trimmed most of that back on my way down. Side trip to the mine. I don’t know what they hoped to mine there, but the exposed granite is gorgeous. Makes me wish I had that in my house. My contractor would probably faint though if I asked him to rip all the existing granite (8 or 9 slabs) out of my house just because I saw some pretty rocks while on a hike.

Turned back uphill before reaching the stone buildings, then down San Gabriel Ridge. Winter is over. There was a rattler sunning himself on San Gabriel. The hikers in front of me startled him down under the rocks, but from what I saw, I think it was a Speckled. Saw two chuckwallas just a few minutes later. Cool when there was clouds, but warm and very muggy when the clouds disappeared.
