This was supposed to be Ruth Adler's List Finisher on Hillyer and Pacifico, but the strange spring weather, road closures and a bout of mononucleosis changed our plans.
Nine of us met in La Cañada at 9:00 AM and considered the possibilities so that we could save Hillyer and Pacifico for Ruth. We decided on Islip and Pinyon Ridge as it was to be Daniel Bleiberg's 100th peak. His parents, sister and brother-in-law were along and joined Ruth, Eivor Nilsson, Debbie Kottler and me for a pleasant hike up Islip. It started to drizzle a bit on the peak but no serious rain.
We then drove to Vincent Gap and drove the road to Pinyon Ridge where Daniel negotiated the low brush to climb his 100th peak! Congratulations! A nice party followed and we all headed home.
