Well, it's fall in the San Gorgonio Wilderness -- time for an annual rite of passage, a fall color hike to Aspen Grove.

First, I'll need some important supplies. Like a good friend.


And for an arduous trip like this I'll need some hard core hiking companions.


The first Aspens!


Welcome to YOUR national forest.


Walking in the upper grove.


Discovering important treasures.


And taking in the fall color


Along the trail




Still in the upper grove

Stopping in the lower grove




Rich colors!




Autumnal gold




A fall picnic

That's a Clikstand by the way that I'm using.

Satisfied customers


Well, it's starting to get a little cold


So it's time to hit the trail.

But not before we take one last look at Aspen Grove as the sun goes down behind the ridge.


Bye, bye!

Nice photo-tour, Jim!

And I notice that one of the party's responsible members brought up the rear, rather than leaving the weaker member to trail along behind and maybe get into trouble. Good crew!

Thanks guys. It was fun to take the family out on the trail. We got some cute video shots of our daughter playing in a creek the next afternoon.
