Alpine Canyon

A pleasant little canyon of five rappels in the San Gabriel Mountains near the historic Mt. Lowe railway and resort that's no longer (for quite some years, actually). The final rappel was about 240 feet and fun to do. That's about all you say. A nice day of canyoneering with a finish in the 90-degree heat while below the temperature was in the hundreds.

Explanation: Jerri's pack was hurting her neck so she reversed it for more comfort.
Kevin and Rich packing the 300-foot rope into the rope bag.
The final, 240-foot rappel. That's Kevin about midway down.
