W6/CT-273 – Agua Dulce Benchmark

I had a couple days off work without any real plans, so off to Agua Dulce! I parked just off the 14 and hiked down the obvious dirt road. I continued on the road until it ended at a set of power line pylons, then turned south and headed along the ridge line firebreak. The wind was incredibly strong, and at one point almost knocked me over! One false summit with benchmarks along the way. At the real summit, I found additional benchmarks and a summit register. I was able to setup the station just below the ridge which kept me out of the wind. Worked 30M and 40M, one S2S.

First benchmark I found, this is not the summit though.
