Ascent Trip Report

Monica and I celebrated Robert's and Stefan's San Diego 100 Peaks list finish. The temperature was unexpectedly cool (~60F) in the morning and mildly hot (~80F) in the afternoon. Running water in the creek attracted a lot of bees. Robert and I had different ideas on the approach but we made compromises. The celebration with the expensive views was very memorable. We took a different route on the way back to explore the canyon floor. The floor was well-trimmed and probably a better approach at this moment. Overall we saw 2 adult big horn and one baby big horn. The road to the trailhead was ROUGH but doable for our 4x4. We didn't see anyone else but one unfortunate hatchback which got stuck in soft sand near S22.
