San Jacinto Loop (2012)

Spines to Pines

Well, this was supposed to be the 4th annual San Jacinto Loop. Craig, Chad and I. As it turned out, we ended up just doing an 18 mile day hike. Weather, like last year, was colder than expected (below freezing before dark). The three of us were in some sort of a funk all day. Around 6 pm we dropped down into a secluded and protected rock formation near Wellman’s Divide and had dinner. A storm was rolling in and as a group we decided to call it a day and hiked back and took the tram back down to Palm Springs. We just weren’t in a groove.
