Mt Lawlor 5957 ft (W6 CT-089) 12 Jan 2018

Up early to do some stargazing. High level clouds were limiting but was able to see Vega and the constellation Hercules rising in the east, spot Arcturus and Spica, and begin to make out the constellation Draco which I had never tried to spot before….I was able to “see” a dragon but probably not the “official” one! This was up just beyond Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road on the Angeles Crest Highway turnoff.

Returned to Red Box picnic area (Mt Wilson Road). Dave, Gary and Ken showed up for the hike about 0715. Hiked the usual way up Lawlor. A few days previously we had had some snow, but maybe not as low as Lawlor, there was some on Baldy and 8000 ft Mt Waterman…but none on Mt Lawlor like last January’s hike.
