Approximately 10 guests and 32 members assembled at Icehouse Canyon on the sunny and slightly breezy day. After the short shuttle to the base of the ski lift, all but three of the participants hiked the steep trail to the notch. The group then made a pleasant stroll up the road to Thunder. Down and up again to the summit of Telegraph. The last of the bunch arrived just as the luncheon bell was sounding. There was gorp supreme, fillets of spaghetti with meat sauce, corned beef au naturel, and stuffed baby olives under tin. The breeze on the dining patio, and the superb views of Baldy and Cucamonga (the peak, that is, not the town) from the terrace helped to make the banquet (sic) a huge success. With happy hearts and leaden stomachs, the group jogged its way down to the Telegraph-Timber saddle (all except for five very hardy souls who braved the wilds of Cedar Canyon) and up again, at a blistering pace to the summit of Timber.
At Icehouse saddle four intrepid souls (fools) took off for more peaks. The more sensible remainder of the group headed directly for Icehouse, making a welcome stop for that brew of brews, cool refreshing mountain spring water, at Columbine Spring.
