2014 - May 29-30 » Baden-Powell, Ross, Will Thrall, Pleasant View

With two days to kill, I cleaned up some of the last peaks I had on the HPS list based around the Los Angeles Crest Hwy. Thursday, I went up and over Baden-Powell before dropping down to Ross Mtn, returning over Baden-Powell again. Friday turned out to be a nice surprise, as I unknowingly saved one of the best hikes in the area for last. I hiked in via the Buckhorn trail to tag Will Thrall and Pleasant View Ridge. I typically think of the San Gabriel HPS peaks as being very dry, but this area was surprisingly lush, with several springs feeding the area. And the views from both Will Thrall and Pleasant View were, well, very pleasant...
