I see Mount San Jacinto almost every day. I looms large on the Western Skyline of the Coachella Valley where I live. If I could live on it I would. But since it's mostly wilderness area I have to content myself with visiting and then returning home to the desert. Plus, it'd be too cold for my wife. Days spent hiking there are always memorable and although I've hiked it hundreds of time I still look forward to when I can get back there. This is one of my best days on the mountain.
