Well, it's fall in the San Gorgonio Wilderness -- time for an annual rite of passage, a fall color hike to Aspen Grove.
First, I'll need some important supplies. Like a good friend. Make sure you choose one that is SUL. ;)
And for an arduous trip like this I'll need some hard core hiking companions.
The first Aspens!
Welcome to YOUR national forest.
Walking in the upper grove.
Discovering important treasures.
And taking in the fall color
Along the trail
Still in the upper grove
Stopping in the lower grove
A fall picnic
That's a Clikstand alcohol set up by the way.
Well, it's starting to get a little cold
So it's time to hit the trail.
But not before we take one last look at Aspen Grove as the sun goes down behind the ridge.
