The Bobcat fire scarred San Gabriel Mountains from Pacifico Mountain
9 APRIL 2022 W6/CT-015
After hiking up Mount Emma at dawn I intended to to the two unnamed neighbors of that mountain. However, after my summit-to-summit with Dan NA6MG on Mount Gleason, he changed my mind by suggesting Pacifico Mountain. I had done this mountain last year with Brian WA6JFK.
Last trip we took Brian’s Honda Element. This trip I now had Whitedog, my new Toyota Tacoma. While passenger vehicles can and do make this trip, I certainly don’t recommend it. There are a few sketchy spots. My first trip up Pacifico last century was in a 1960 Impala 🙂
There was only one other group camping at the summit campground when I arrived. I had a fun activation with numerous summit-to-summit contacts.
I didn’t take many photos on this trip because I spent a lot of time flying Chester. Soon the wind came up and grounded my little insect. While the day had been warm, it soon became chilly in the shade and in the wind.
