At 11,499 feet, San Gorgonio Mountain is the highest peak in Southern California.  I've got my boots on!

Here's a map showing the proximity of San Gorgonio Mountain to Yucaipa.  According to Google Earth, the summit is just 13 miles from my front door!*  The trail to the summit is 17.5 miles round trip, with a 5,420-foot gain, and is rated "Class 1, strenuous".  Fun fun fun fun!

The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know Your name will trust in You,
for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You.
Sing praises to the Lord, enthroned in Zion;
proclaim among the nations what He has done.
For He who avenges blood remembers;
He does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.
— Psalm 9:9-12
