First activation for this seldom-visited summit in the Los Padres National Forest.
A weekday hike to a lightly visited summit.
A balmy day perfect for an extended activation
On this trip I witnessed something I have never seen before.
Not everything went right on this trip, but it all worked out well in the end
I return to activate a local peak with HF capability this time.
A peaceful winter hike and I had the mountain all to myself in refreshing, quiet solitude
A mid-week, predawn jaunt up a local mountain.
A nostalgic visit to a rare, still-functioning fire lookout tower.
A wonderful winter activation that almost didn’t happen.
