Ascent Trip ReportThis was a private hike of this HPS peak in Joshua Tree. We had both done this peak before, but George wanted a pathfinder. We were following the HPS peak guide. It had snowed the previous date and it was an absolutely beautiful day to hike, sunny and a light covering of snow. It isn’t often we get to hike in snow in Joshua Tree. It wasn’t a lot, most of the time 1-2 inches. From the summit we were planning to do a loop hike taking the ridge out to Panorama then down Block Rock Canyon. Unfortunately, on the ridge the wind was blowing too hard so we decided to return the way we came.
