“We headed for the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Dayhikers ready to make the transition to weekend Backpackers. The weather forecast was for possible scattered showers. No one told us about the impending snow storm. But such is the life of a Backpacker who travels through the mountains.
Trip report is wth the pictures:

“and an even greater tale...
"One is defined by the journey, not the road".
“Thanks it was a special trip for a lot of folks”
“great trip, and well documented, I felt like I was there.”
“i know why you in my webshots favorites. I hate to look at your pictures though...always wish I would be there. :(”
“you need to travel west a bit and get to see some other country. come float a river this year.”
“Come on out Gemini, we will take you to the Sierra!
I just added a few pictures of the birds of prey I saw while driving out of the Mountains”
“Good job, WLD!! Glad it was a success!”
“Loved your trip report and photos as always. Your surprise snow storm took me back to Tuolomne Meadows and my surprise snow storm. Great fun! Glad that everyone had an adventurous spirit.”
“Thanks for the photos.
It was a great trip even if I had to leave early.”
“Generous thing you did there.
Under those conditions, you have to wonder if anyone in the group thought that little thought...
"Why am I doing this?"”
“Great pics and report.”
“Ditto what Sass said!
Were those Golden Eagles?”
“Awesome pics. Wish I could be there. I like that trail.
Very nice of you to put that all together! I'll bet everyone enjoyed it.
Sorry I missed tarbubble and nav on that trip.”
“Dang! 93 pictures! Took me forever to browse them. Couldn't help but laugh when I saw there was a guy named Oskar, lol. Great pictures, looks like it was fun. Would love to meet you someday WLD.”
“The surprise snow storms are the best.
And I've got to admit, the West is the best.”
“Yep Tango, you never know what to expect in the mountians. :)
Naviguesser, no worries, it all worked out. We need to get together so I can give you back the items you left for us to use.
TekDude, I am sure that happened to most of them. It would be a natural question... LOL, but we always seem to come back, don't we!
WindWalker, while I was watching them, that is what I thought they were. They were not hawks. Their wingspan was at least 6' across.
Phil, I wish you could have made it too, but I am not sure the Beginners could have handled the VCB.
Dub, it would be great to meet you too. Hopefully we can hook up on a trip someday.
Thanks all, I am glad you enjoyed them.”
“WLD - I think they are ready for the Vivian Creek Bandits now!!”
