I was nearing the top of the switchbacks when the sunset was happening. The sky was turning intensely glowing hue of orange and deep ocean blue… Under this deep ocean blue sky, the view of Ontario, Bighorn and Cucamonga Peaks just took my breath away. Earlier I wondered about a Cucamonga Meetup hike supposed to take place via Icehouse Canyon. I was sure it was as beautiful looking back at the west side of Mt. Baldy. Can’t wait to come back and hike those three peaks.
