Day 9, 5/12, Fuller Ridge, M-194, 23mi

Today was a big day of climbing. Idyllwild is at ~5500′ and I pretty much climbed all morning to top out on Mt San Jacinto at 10,800′.

Morning light on Tahquitz Peak

View back toward Idyllwild with Tahquitz Peak on right end of ridge.

First snow of the trip ~9000′

North facing slope with lots of snow.

The mountaineers hut just below Mt. San Jacinto

Mt. San Jacinto… the highest Peak in Southern California

Definitely snow on the trail !

First real water crossing.

Camped among the Manzanita on Fuller Ridge. I’m so ready for bed!
