Baden-Powell to Throop...and Beyond (A 5-peak Loop Dayhike in the San Gabriels)

My second-ever trip to the San Gabriels saw DB and I undertaking a fabulous loop up and over Mount Baden-Powell. Hiking the beautiful PCT to the summit, we dropped down and continued up and over the summit of Mount Burnham and on to the summit of Throop Peak.

While DB waited for me just below the summit of Throop Peak, I went on to tag Mount Hawkins. Returning, she and I took the good trail that leads down to Dawson Saddle from Throop. Once at the saddle, I ran up and tagged the top of Mount Lewis. From there, a 5.5 mile hike back to Vincent Gap along the closed Angeles Crest Highway.
