Chilao Camping - October 2010


 For some reason there was an amazing one night trip that slipped through the cracks & must be written about. This outing was taken in the middle of October when the weather in Los Angeles was still hinting at Summer heat & chill in the evening night.

With a few new friends along for the trip, we set up along the ridge within the Chilao Camping area. Part of a western upper loop, but the campground reached up to a beautiful plateau view that attracts all the campers at sunset.

A good afternoon traverse, off trail with some interesting navigation routes, that all led to a good time. Lunch spot on a fallen tree below, looking out over the plateau. 

 Finishing out the day with a hearty dinner & some great beers looking out over the below valley. The San Gabriel's have been providing some excellent adventures this past year.

"Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings." ~Victor Hugo

"But the place which you have selected for your camp, though never so rough and grim, begins at once to have its attractions, and becomes a very centre of civilization to you: "Home is home, be it never so homely."  ~Henry David Thoreau
