A few weeks ago, we trekked 5 miles into The Narrows, a well-known gold panning spot in the Angeles National Forest back in the San Gabriel mountains. The hike out wasn’t bad. We left at 7:00 AM so the air was still cool, shade in our favor. We arrived around 9:00 AM a little winded but happy to be at our temporary home for the weekend. Coming back was a different story!
We left The Narrows around 1:00 PM in the dead heat- sun booming. We wanted to avoid the high trail- which consists of a small amount of scaling the cliff, and we went through the river. This river trail sets you back about an hour, cools you down as you tromp through the stream, then challenges your endurance with an incline like no other! It took about 3 hours but we only had one thing in mind to keep us going… In N Out… That’s what a hamburger is all about… (for those who don’t know what this is, please refer to my previous blog: Traditions– or refer to the definition of: Greatest hamburger/fast food restaurant on earth).
It looks like a beautiful area from your photos, was that you dangling from the bridge?
no just some bungie jumper 🙂 looks fun though!

Looks an amazing part of the world. Shame you could not pick up a couple of pebbles of gold while you were there.
I know!! A few pebbles of gold here and there would be nice!

I rode past the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Lee’s Ferry in Arizona on Monday Oct. 1st. Both were closed. I hope this shutdown doesn’t last too long.
