Up Echo Mountain
Hiked up Echo Mountain today, which is only a 6-mile walk round trip so there’s no need to be impressed with my mountain-climbing prowess. My feet are unimpressed with the endeavor, for sure, as is my lightly sunburnt skin.
The summit was a stop on the old Mt. Lowe cable-car line, which has since been dismantled leaving some attractive ruins that are nicely signposted by the local historical societies. Ruins really make the best picnic grounds.
