2011 - Jan 16 » Lawson, Gaskill, Los Pinos, Corte Madera, and Morena Butte

     Continuing with the SDC peak list, we decided to clean up the remaining peaks we had left south of the 8. We hiked Lawson + Gaskill first, then drove up Los Pinos, hiked to the summit of Corte Madera, and finished Morena Butte just before dark, clocking in a 17 mile but not too strenuous day. The combination of the views, the scrambling on Lawson/Gaskill, the huge rock face on Corte Madera, and an amazing sunset from Morena Butte made this one of my favorite days working on the SDC list.
