Historic Shelter At Mt. San Jacinto Peak

Click on the following link for: High Definition

In the above video I posted images and footage around Mt. San Jacinto summit. In one clip you will see a tour of the Mt. San Jacinto's Peak Shelter at an elevation of 10,800 feet. The historic refuge house was built around 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The stone structure is still used for hikers caught in bad weather.


This was my second hike up Mt. San Jacinto Peak and we previously hiked five days before. The first time we went down the mountain I bruised both my toenails. To prevent this from happening again, I bought new hiking boots a size larger with thick socks to allow more room for my toes. I felt self-conscious because my feet looked enormous, especially when my husband said I looked like Olive Oyl, the skinny cartoon character with big feet!
