Day 8 - Live Oak Trail to Apache Peak/Idyllwild (10.4 mi)
A misty cold morning, but the sun came out and brightened the icy cold crest. The north face of Apache was still buried in snow and reports from Warner Springs suggested heavy snow ahead. Decided to bail at the Spittler Mtn side trail, resupply, and make plans for the snow. Some above-and-beyond hospitality from other hikers gave me good company and a place to stay in Idyllwild.
