San Bernardino Trail

This afternoon a few of us took off for the mountains to hike in cooler weather. Out choice for the simple six plus mile hike was going to be the San Bernardino Trail in the Mt. San Gorgonio Wilderness. We arrived at the trailhead about 4:30 in the afternoon.

As we started up the trail and noticed all the flowers that were beginning to bloom. A few we walked past without getting pictures. We wanted to get as far out on the trail as we could.

I saw a plant that I have not yet identified, but it was a splash or yellow, orange an red against the grey soil.

Further up the trail was some Scarlet Paintbrush in a rather large group.

On our way we also saw some Lupine.

We made it to a trail junction just over four miles our. My GPS said it was 4.8 and the map said 4.2 miles. Looking at the clock it was time to turn around and head back. I did break out the small tripod and Velcro it to the limb a fell tree for a group shot.

As we headed back to the trailhead the sun was setting. The evening air was cool and it was a great afternoon into evening hike. Next time we will have to start in the morning and work our way to San Bernardino Peak.
