Ascent Trip Report

Couple to San Gaberial Peak

We started the hike the same way we ended it, in heavy fog that often limited visiblity to less than 15 feet. But I'm rarely in L.A. so what the hey. The flora and fauna was the highlight of the hike. However it was disappointing not being able to see anything from the summits. After reaching San Babriel Peak it started to rain and despite plans to hike up Mt. Lowe we high tailed it back to the car.
