My buddy Larry (@csusbgeochem1) and I decided to take our kiddos (our doggies) out on a short but fun hike in the San Gorgonio wilderness! We drove up highway 38 to Barton flats and hiked up the South fork trail to Horse meadows, Poopout Hill, and South fork meadows. First we checked out the old cabins at Horse meadows. Then we stopped on Poopout hill for a minute to check out the view looking up at the summit of Mt. San Gorgonio, the highest peak in Southern California. Then we headed down to our final destination... South fork meadows! The meadows were lush and green with lots of water flowing all over the area. Despite being cloudy and a bit cool it was a really nice day to be out. We found a good spot to hangout and had a little picnic at the edge of the meadows. After enjoying some food and drinks and letting the kiddos run around the meadows for a bit, we headed back over Poopout hill and down the trail back to the trailhead at Barton flats.

Yep, it's a good one! And not to far of a drive to get to the trailhead either.

Thanks @joanstewart! The meadows was a perfect spot to take the dogs. Nice and wide open so they could run around and play.

I miss the days when our dogs could run free, of late every place you go require them on a lead.... just not the same!
