Saddleback Butte SP

 Entrance to the park with the peak in the background.
Fresh and eager the Explorers prepare for their hike.
 Two miles and 1000 feet of gain to the summit.
 Many of the hikers reached the summit before me.
50 people reached the summit of the peak.
 Sunset over the Antelope Valley.
 Approaching camp.
 My flashlight illuminates a rattlesnake found near one of our camps.
Investigating the mysteries of Jiffy Pop.
Sunrise over Saddleback Butte and the FWC.
 One last view of the butte before heading for home.

  1. I hate snakes... They scare the hell out of me! Did the little kiddos reach the peak? If they did, i am challenged because i have never made it to the top of any hill or mountain.
