In this edition of Anthony’s Audio Journal I take a solo day hike down to the South Fork of the San Jacinto River. Located near Idyllwild in the San Jacinto Mountains,  the South Fork Trail  is seldom used as it descends deep into the canyon. On this adventure I took only a Finnish Bread Bag and my Luna Sandals as I hiked to the bottom for a quick bushcraft lunch.
