Mount Zion Loop

Mount Zion Loop

Meeting up with an old friend, we made a quick weekend trip into
Big Santa Anita Canyon above Sierra Madre. The first day I hiked with my son from Chantry Flats to Spruce Grove to camp. We set up camp and got our fire going while we waited for my buddy who was coming up late. This was also a gear shake-out and the maiden voyage of my new GSI Outdoors Halulite 2.7 L Pressure Cooker. While the pressure cooker is not intended for backpacking, it did allow us to enjoy Lentil Sweet Potato Curry while camping along Winter Creek. I hate cleaning dishes, but it was well worth the weight penalty. The second day we hiked through Sturtevant camp to the top of Mount Zion, through Hoegees Camp and back to Chantry Flats to complete the loop.
