Hi.

Hiking, backpacking, and camping throughout Southern California and beyond

Gathering the PD and his daughter, Soph and I headed out to Whale Peak in January to not only collect another peak for her, but to enjoy the quiet solitude of the desert. I had been there twice already, but never to camp.

We approached from the north and camped in a large flat area below the peak. It had obviously been used for years as a campsite. It got pretty cold, dropping into the high 30’s. The night sky was amazing and the silence was wonderful.

Sometimes that’s all you need to enjoy nature at its finest.
