Chaparrosa Peak, Eureka Peak

28 March 1965

By: John Frost, Assistant Leader

On Sunday, March 28, thirty adults and children scrambled over the ridges above Yucca Valley to Chaparrosa Peak. This is Pinyon Pine and Juniper country, fresh and crisp in the early spring air. Snow-clad San Jacinto Mountain loomed in the foreground as we neared the top; a panoramic view of the high desert was available to the east. In the afternoon we caravaned to Eureka Peak and walked the short distance to the summit. The sky was crystal clear and contrasted with the smog which could be seen blowing through San Gorgonio Pass. As we stood in this delightful spot, we found it hard to imagine being back at out weekday jobs on the following day.
