Over the years I've spent many days hiking around the Mt. Baldy area, going up the ski lifts to the Notch to ski, or just see the sights. In many ways, the top of the Notch has been reinvented to include night hiking, zip lines, overnight cabins, music festivals, dancing and more. There's simply a lot of activity after the sun sets up there at 7800 feet. All in the middle of a classically beautiful mountain location. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
