Holy Jim and Part Santiago Peak Trails

Starting the year- Memories 200 Film

I wanted to start the year doing more solo hikes and as dangerous as that sounds I did want to challenge myself to depend less on others. I did accidentally jump on Santiago Peak Trail and only made it midway because of time wise. There were fire trucks and many obstacles keeping me from this hike but I at least wanted to make it to a certain point of the trail.

Last Shots- Memories 200 Film

Last shot on this trail included this concrete platform, mailbox, and how tall the climb was. All I wondered was if the mailman really went all the way up here to deliver mail to this one box.

Bee Hives- Memories 200 Film

Upon reaching the summit we cam across some bee hives surrounded by electrical fences. Though one fence the gate was open for some reason.

Steep Steep Steep- Memories 200 Film

Garcia Trail is closed and this trail reminded me a bit of it. It was really steep and we took breaks before the bigger inclines. Especially after doing the other hike in Pasadena earlier this one just felt that much longer.

This was a nice hike though it went through the streets at some points, and the smell, oh man the smell.

Under Colorado Bridge to the Rose Bowl- Memories 200 Film

I’ve spent a good number of years growing up around Pasadena and this was the first time going under this bridge. At the end of this trail I also realized I barely visit the rose bowl.

Skull Rock- Memories 200 Film

An interesting hike we ended at a rock that was shaped like a skull. Of course my first instinct was to climb it, and when I realized I can barely fit through the eye I crawled my way into it and took in the view from it.

Number 52- Memories 200 Film

My friend had a resolution last year to finish 52 hikes within the year. It seemed as though a tiring task for there were many weeks he couldn’t hike and at some instance was doing numerous hikes within a single week. He did manage to reach his goal and I was fortunate enough to see him finish his goal.
