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).
