Joe (me), Zoe and Doug at the Fish Creek trailhead at 8,070 feet. The plan for the day was to summit San Gorgonio Mountain and check out the C-47 wreckage on the Sky High Trail, a 17.5 mile round trip.
Looking down on "The Tarn" from the trail. Located at 10,560 feet just southeast of the summit. When melting snow fills it each spring, it becomes the highest lake in southern California. The peak behind it is Bighorn Mountain.
After checking out the wreckage for half an hour, we were back on the trail for the long hike out. I returned to the aera and visited the crash site, photos from that hike can be seen here http://joeidoni.smugmug.com/gallery/1901607
