Ascent Trip Report

After mailing my taxes at the post office on Palmdale Rd, I drove up the Angeles Forest Hwy and started the hike about 9:40 AM. Some mild bushwhacking was needed at the start but once on the route, it was all obvious. It was sunny but cool, there were nice pockets of wildflowers on the ridge line and Pacifico was shrouded in clouds. When I got back to the car a little after noon, I turned on the radio and heard the sad news of multiple explosions and possible serious injuries at the finish-line in Boston.
