I hiked up to Dante's View both Saturday and this morning around 8:30a. It's not too crowded, the view is from the San Gabriels to Long Beach and beyond, the languages spoken were spanish, english, japanese, chinese, russian (with english in the minority) and it was breathtaking. My actual chest hurts, as do my feet and calves. But, I vow to hike at least once a weekend this year (weather permitting). It just feels that good.
