Done SoCal

SoCal is finished! 4 days from Big Bear to Cajon Pass and 5 more days to Agua Dulce in the books. The sections went through everything Southern California has the offer: low desert, high pine forests, river gorges, and hot springs. I'd like to say that I'm done with the desert, but the next stretch is through the Mojave.

Highlights of the last stretch were Deep Creek hot springs, Baden Powell, and a view of downtown LA at night from Mt Gleason. The trail did cross the Station Fire burn, which took place in 2009 and torched 600 square miles in the Angeles National Forest. The burn area is now overgrown with poodle dog bush, which is poison oak's nastier cousin. I road walked up in the mountains for a day and a half to avoid it.

Everybody's eyes are now on the Sierra. Only 250 miles away!
