@csusbgeochem1, @beckymeep, and I headed up into the San Jacinto mountains for a campout on Fuller Ridge. We setup our camp at one of the yellow post sites at the Fuller Ridge trailhead and then hiked down the Pacific Crest Trail for a couple miles. This section of the PCT has some really awesome views! After the hike we headed back to enjoy our camp for the night.

The next morning Larry and Becca took off early because they had some mechanical car issues to deal with, but I decided to spend the morning hiking up the Fuller Ridge trail to climb Castle Rocks!! It was a steep climb up above the trail. And there was even a little class 3 climbing to get on the summit rocks, but nothing too difficult for me. I hung out on top for quite a while thoroughly enjoying the awesome views. Then I descended back to the trail, hiked back down the trail to the trailhead, packed up my camp, and then headed back home.
