Comments
Comments: We hiked up Signal Ridge with GMC group of friends after coincidental meeting upon arrival at trailhead. Time restrictions had them returning same route as we chose longer Desolation-Carrigain Notch hike out. Trails nice and dry. Nice views today. Lots of nice trail on this loop with short, steep difficult section on Desolation requiring some cautious stepping. Some practice rescue procedures being performed on Signal Ridge around 2:00.
