On a Friday morning there was ample parking space at the trail head. Trails to Ontario and Bighorn Peak are now entirely snow free. I skipped Cucamonga peak this time in favor for some leisure time with my sketchbook. These windswept trees near the tree line on the ridge between Bighorn and Ontario Peak looked precarious and tenacious, and seemed like a good metaphor for my hike.
