Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Nick Shah’s Meanderthals’ group. Started out with six hikers, but only four made it to Baldy. Three of us continued on over to Mount Harwood. On top of the penultimate bump before Harwood, we saw a large group of people with hands up, and we thought they were taking photos. As we got closer, it turned out they were chanting a prayer with hands clasped and all facing the same direction. I don’t know what religion, but they were speaking English, and I thought it was a beautiful place to hold a service. Tons of people on the trails and Baldy summit.
