San Jacinto

Another great weekend. This weekend was scout camp. We hiked up to the top of San Jacinto Mountain. The summit of this mountain is 10,834 feet and it is very difficult to breath up there. Luckily we cheated and took a tram up to the 8,000 foot mark. On Friday we took the tram and hiked two miles into Round Valley. We cooked dinner and spent the night there. This morning we ate breakfast and hid our back packs near the camp site. We then took our day packs and hiked 3.3 miles up to the summit. The view from the top was amazing. You can see forever in all directions. The clouds covered the ground so we couldn't see much buit it was so beautiful looking down onto the tops of the clouds. I wasn't about to hike up there with my good camera but our small camera is broken. I then went to borrow Sarah and Alex's cameras but they both had dead batteries and I didn't have time to let them charge. That means that I had to take pictures with my Treo. I apologize that they aren't all that great but you will get the idea. It was a great day. The young women are making this hike in the summer and Lisa and I are going along as chaperones. I'm looking forward to it.
