Sierra Club HPS Trip, lead by Joe Young Diane Dunbar. Robinson #65. Started with 14 people but 2 dropped out. Met at the La Canada Rideshare location. Drove West on 210 off at Sunland, to Mt. Gleason Ave, to Angeles Forest Highway to Upper Rio Tijunga to Angeles Crest Highway. Stopped by a motorcycle rider who had crashed his bike and had a broken collarbone. Parked at area 1/4 mile west of the tunnels. Hike ascended south ridge of Williamson. There were patches of snow on the ground. Had lunch at top at 11:30 AM. Then took the Islip Saddle trail back which had very little snow. Then we picked up a shuttle from Islip Saddle to take us back to our cars 1.6 miles away.
