In this episode I take a look back at my trip to Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48 states. This podcast was lost when my podcast host server crashed and took all my earlier episodes with it. Alas, I saved this one and thought I’d share it with my new listeners.
Also, I mention some interesting things in the news today and talk a bit about another past episode 53 Trouble at the Trailhead.

This episode is about a day hike up to the summit of Mt. Baldy, the highest point in Los Angeles County California. We hike up the Sierra Club Ski Hut Trail, an intense 4,000 foot gain over four miles. Along the way we pass the beautiful San Antonio Falls and work our way up to the Ski Hut built in the 1930’s by early ski mountaineers and maintained by volunteers today.
We also pass the crash site of two World War II fighter planes and a spiritual location on the way to the narrow section of trail know as the Devil’s Backbone.
Come along with Katie, Eric, John, Gerry and I as we experience, The Sierra Club Ski Hut Trail to the top of Mt. Baldy
