Went with Rashied and Chris up to Mt Hawkins. This peak is a bit southeast of Islip Saddle, and I'd wanted to go a few weeks earlier, but was warned that there would still be quite a lot of snow, so went on one of the Santa Monica Mountains hikes instead. The guidebook says this trail is 8 miles, my GPS said 9.4, the signs said 8, and the map said 9+, so let's call it 9+ miles, with 2300' or so of gain, but about 3100' of climbing (yeesh!). Summit at 8860' or so.

I used both my sd850 and rashied's Pentax K-7.
