Ascent Trip Report

Wanted to do Humber to tram and back on a loop, but south approach closed due to fire - could only hike it thru wellman divide and back. Decided to do Tahquitz and Red Tahquitz. Tahquitz Peak Lookout was open, but not red. Did a loop thru Little Tahquitz Valley and back to Saddle Jct so still a nice day out. Ranger said the portions closed would be closed for quite a while.
