San Jacinto Peak...finally completed the route

Postby Ratboy » Thu Mar 30, 2006 11:29 pm

Hiked this in February, but began with a sinus cold, which moved to my chest mid-hike. Taking the tram down put such a blockage in my head it was a severe sinus headache all the way back to Irvine, CA....

All in all it was a great trip. The first one my friend Chris was not injured or hur, made it up from the tram in 2.5 hours. I followed along, hobbling with my sinusitis in about 3.25 hours. Made a cup of the best crappy coffeee I ever had with my new jetboi. That thing really rocks.

Anyway, here is a link to some shots. Really did not take that many, comparable to other trips, but whatever. It was fun. Now, to plan the whole route from Palm Springs to the Peak....sometime.

Sounds like fun. I love all the shots of the old wooden signs. Don't see those much anymore in the Sierra. All those ugly metal ones are being used now.

Sorry about the sinusitis. I have had serious sinus problems for 20+ years.
