On Saturday I climbed the last of the "Three Saints" - the three highest peaks in the mountain ranges of Southern California. Back in September of '08 I climbed Mt. San Antonio (Old Baldy), and in September of '09 I climbed Mt. San Gorgonio. San Jacinto Peak at 10,834 feet was the last of the three for me. I went with a fellow parishioner from Christ's Church - Anglican, with whom I've hiked before. The climb was an easy ascent of about 2300 ft over about five and a half miles.

This hut was built near the summit in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Inside are emergency supplies and journals that have been written in by climbers.
