Ascent Trip Report

Pretty day and glad to be away from the LA heat.

Not far along the trail we passed a couple on their way out who excitedly warned us that they had just surprised a mama bear with 2 cubs and later down the trail passed what they thought was a large male bear in the bushes. They turned around and came out. We continued on, making lots if noise, but never saw any sign of the bears.

Went to Portuguese Peak on way back.
