Friday: (12/18) Breakfast from L&L Hawaiian, my sausage egg an cheese English muffin and a maple bar. I met my 14 fellow hikers at Rancho San Antonio County park and Open Space. We did a nice climb up the PG&E Trail onto the slippery Quarry Trail then down on the Black Mountain Trail to the Chamise Trail and back to our cars via the Rogue Valley and Lower Meadow Trails. Nice wide trials were good for conversation. Nice to finish before the expected but not realized rain. Elevation change of 1816 feet. Overall climb of 4382 feet. Nice green hills.
Great views with the clear cold air. Most of the group is on the right. Two hikers took a spur hike up to Black Mountain Peak, about 2 miles additional and they missed the picture.
I stopped by Home Depot on th way home to pick up some more bags of concrete mix. Then I hurried home, showered and joined Lou, Dawn and Ernie at Marie Calendar’s for dinner.
