Ascent Trip Report

Very windy and cold day. 40 degrees as Jim and I headed up the Cactus Spring Trail at 6:45 AM. Went up HPS route 1 and down HPS route 2. Route 2 is overgrown but luckily Jim had downloaded the tracks so we were able to follow it down without crashing thru brush. We also deviated to go over to Palm View Peak. My second time to this peak. First time there was no view due to the pine forest. Now after the Mountain Fire there are nothing but old crages standing on top and there is a view thru the crages.
