It was sweltering hot in the San Gabriel Valley, 100 plus degrees. Even the beaches were hot! Low 80’s in the mountains was very appealing, so off we went to the Barton Flats campground, in the San Bernardino National Forest, for four nights. Even though July is peak vacation season, we were able to book our favorite campsite, number 38, because this trip was during the work week instead of the weekend. While there, we were able to visit a few new places.
