I'm in LA for work right now and I have Thursday night - Sunday night available to do a backpacking trip before I head back to bland Wisconsin.
I was planning going to the Channel Islands, but the permits didn't work out. The other place I was thinking of was the trans Catalina trail, but I'm a bit off put by the having to adhere to the ferry schedule.
One thought I had was the Rae lakes loop, but I'm not sure if that would be recommended this time of the year. Anyone been around there recently?
Any other suggestions are welcome...
