Apache Peak Podcast
July 4, 2009
This episode of Anthony’s Audio Journal is about a day hike to Apache Peak along the desert divide on the Pacific Crest Trail. Dave and I head up the Spitler Peak Trail to the PCT then head north toward the west and taller of Apache’s twin peaks. Along the way Dave and I get a bird’s eye view of the beautiful Garner Valley with its large sprawling ranches, Lake Hemet and experience the unusual transitional zones from the chaparral to pine forest. We met some interesting folks with the California Conservation Corp and get a great workout along the way.
We saw a large sprawling ranch from the trail that turned out to be the Zen Mountain Center, a Buddhist retreat.
We also had a good chat with Jose Murrillo and his California Conservation Crew from San Bernardino while they worked on the trail. Discover what the California Connservation Crew is all about at http://www.ccc.ca.gov/
