Mt. Baldy (10,064′) November 20, 2009

When in Southern California giving multimedia presentations I usually like to get outside during the daytime.  One tradition has been to hike Mt. Baldy.  Anybody can come who is in shape for a casual hike to the top of this 10,064′ peak and who can take a day off from work to join us.  The groups are always fun and usually have a mix of a few new people along with the usual suspects.  I always meet at 6am so there’s plenty of time to get up and down the mountain by early afternoon so I can drive off in the direction of my next slideshow, which in this case was at the Tarzana location of Adventure 16.  A great time was had by all.  Here are a few pictures.  The rest are here:  http://kurtwedbergphotography.com/Southern-California/Mt-Baldy/Mt-Baldy-November-20-2009/10398560_z85TW/1/720261895_QfcDG

Summit photo on a clear day.  The thermometer read 40 degrees.  With the Wind chill factor it was a few degrees colder than that.
