Ascent Trip Report2-Day backpacking trip of "The Big 3" HPS peaks in Santa Barbara and Ventura Co with Christine. Day 1 - hiked in the dark 8.5 miles up to McKinley Campground and set up camp. Day 2 - hike Santa Cruz, San Rafael, McKInley Peaks. VERY HOT and brushy. But we worked hard all day. Back to the campground - Christine filtered water from McKinley Spring and I just frantically packed up my gear while getting swarmed with flies. Quick and HOT HOT HOT.... 90++++ degrees hike down to the cars, hitting Kachuma Peak along the way. Great 2-day trip in the mountains with an awesome friend!
