San Jacinto Mountains

At approximately 10:30 p.m. on July 4th a report was received that a person in the mountains was probably lost, or perhaps down. The Sheriff's office reported that a man who was riding a bicycle on the Pacific Crest Trail was past due at his point of being picked up on the highway below.

Three team members who live in the Idyllwild area were contacted. They got their packs ready to hike and stood by for more information from the Sheriff's Office. During that time the man arrived at the prearranged place of his waiting ride home.

The stand-by group was notified of this development and they returned to their homes.
