Good times as always. It was hot hiking back up. Thankfully there were some trees near the top of El Sereno on the way out, unfortunately I got bit by a horse fly when I was taking a picture. Even though this hike doesn't look like much with respect to distance and elevation gain, going uphill for 3 miles in 90+ heat takes its toll. Insomnia won't be a problem tonight.
