Mt. Baldy get there before all of the snow melts

Tanya and I needed to get high!
So, we climbed to the top of Mt. Baldy.
The best way to get those lungs ready before a long run or a race is to do some elevation training.
The Summit of Mt Baldy is just over 10,000 feet.Can you believe it was 80 degrees at the bottom

People still don't believe it snows in Sunny California
Almost to the summit
The skies where so clear we could see for miles

I think these are called snow cones or cups, caused

by the sun.

Grand Canyon here we come! MJ

Ice House Canyon Hike

For a recovery hike after the Leona Divide 50 miler, Tanya, Jeannette and I hiked to the Saddle on the Ice house Canyon Trail. If you are looking for a beautiful hike this is the one. Old Cabins, large pines, mountain streams, incredible views of Mt Baldy.

She ran Leona Divide 50 miler like a pro finishing in 12:20:32
