Leaders: Gordon Lindberg, Harry Sutherland
A contingent of 19 eager hikers signed in at La Cañada. Two more joined us at Dawson Saddle. As Jack Trager was not able to be present, Harry Sutherland agreed to assist. The morning weather was cool, but all participants were well warmed by the time we were on top of Mt Burnham. After a short stop, we descended and hiked toward Mt Hawkins. As our group was making the ascent of Hawkins, we met Doran who was leading another group of Sierra Club hikers down. They had started at Crystal Lake and were including South Hawkins in their itinerary. After another short break, we descended and followed the trail toward Throop Peak. Upon reaching the summit, everyone was ready for a lunch break. The downward hike was made via the old trail. The weather had been ideal for hiking. Several of the hikers had climbed their first peak, and everyone agreed that it had been an enjoyable outing. Thanks to Harry for assisting on this trip.
