Thanks for the pics! I used to live in Alta Loma (33 years) and this brought back some fond memories. Is that a shot of you guys heading east on the 10 FWY? I thought I saw Montclair Plaza to the left.

Yup! We were heading East on 10 :)
Great little wheeling adventure up there.
I really had a great time.
I'm sure more of our group will post more pix.

This pic?


You would be correct! It's Montclair Plaza. See what you're missing? ;)

Did you guys go up the mountain road that eventually ended up on Lone Pine road? That's a good 2000 ft climb and provided a great view of Lytle Creek and Wrightwood.

Well...Not sure if we made it that far. This pic shows where we had to stop due to closure/fire control crews working on the mt.

I think it actually gets better after this gate (see behind FJ's), but we had to stop and turn around here.
Still, a great little run.
:)

Looks like you missed the hidden trail just behind the photographer... The trail I was talking about is back on the dirt road. It goes northward and winds around the mountain. The gate you see pictured leads to the ski lodge at Mt. Baldy. It never opens-except if you got an escort from the rangers.

D'oh!
We'll (that means you ;) ) have to do that trail sometime. Sounds fun!
There were quite a few rangers and fire crews working on fire management and a lot of side trails were closed-maybe even the one you mention. Not sure.
Looking forward to the next drive though! :D
BTW-I looked all lover for Fjamming at the MG but did not locate you :(

Here are the pics I took of us at Lytle Creek. All of the trails were closed due to fires except the main one (where we had our snowball fight last time) and the lake bed. I'm not the best photographer and I took some video of us, that I will post later after I edit it, but here are the pics. I even managed to get some poser flex pics of Ole' Blue as well. We still managed to have a blast and I can't wait to do it again! Thanks Tony for making all of this happen! Enjoy!

















The white stuff towards the top of the hill was actually snow!!!

There were 8 rigs: 1 Tacoma, 1 4 Runner, and 6 FJs. I think there were about 11 adults and 3 kids. It was definitely fun and I will be doing that run again as soon as the trails open up again!

Hahahah...you beat me too it.

:)...It was a blast. Thanks Fjamming!
Hey, I'm glad you guys made it without a predesignated leader! :D

Next time we should do the side trip on Lytle that I've posted earlier. You get up high and is presented with a great view.

My boys and I had a great time with everyone. It was tough keeping my oldest son from stating the obvious on the CB (It's bumpy, it's dusty, I see snow, ...). I'll have to go back and explore the hidden trail again.

I have a bunch of pictures and will post more later. Here's one HDR image I took with the fisheye lens from where we stopped to turn around.
