Jim Thoen was involved in a couple of FAs here, but I don't remember the names he told me.

From early spring to late summer this area grows dense with chaparral brush and lovely, potent smelling flowers. April - June insects swarm collecting pollen from new blooms. Reptiles are seen on trails more.
July - Sept the climate is very hot, sunny, dry, dusty. October - February turkey vultures and large hawks flock and the climate becomes much cooler and cloudy.

This 1.8 mile peak is good for beginners or for those who like to just hike through arid brush.

Although I regret I can't commit to the Nov. date to go to Stonewall, I will be going there this month as we're camping at Oakzanita campground for the last 3 weeks of Oct.
So many great memories there before the fire, walks through the forest on both trails, so many birds and animals and wonderfull varied climbing.
Climbing in the heat, snow, hail and ice, Santa Ana winds-truely a very special place here in wonderfull Southern Calif.
I will once again get with the rangers to get permission to replace the older bolts but not until I've completed my work at Descanso's Wildwood Glenn area.
Then back to Lawson Peak to do likewise.
I also have a topo of Lawson Peak area that I'll post tomorrow.
Have fun and listen to the wind in your hair.
