Ascent Trip Report

I had to be rescued during the hike off the summit, as I did not realize where the trail was after signing in. There was snow scattered and I had tried to stay off the snow therefore, no footprints to follow! At approximately 1600, I finally found a house at 2115! I was quite "green" to hiking knowledge and Leo did not summit with me as I had left him with leg cramps and hiked to the summit by myself for one hour. I broke a glass window of the house, and found a satellite phone inside, therefore called 911. San Gabriel Search and Rescue team arrived at midnight with the homeowner who treated me like a "criminal" and later tried to prosecute me for trespassing however he was told by the police that "she was in fear for her life" so he could not prosecute me. I was 8 miles from the East fork road, temperature 39 degrees at night. I later paid the homeowner $600 for the window as he requested.
