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

So have you been enjoying temperatures in the 80s, with cool breezes at night? Could fall be on the way? This weekend will prove summer is still with us as the high temperature for Saturday will reach 100 degrees...again. The good news is the temperatures will drop, but only back in the 90s, with no real break in sight. For this week the temperatures will slowly get warmer, before reaching the century mark. Lows will stay in the 60s until the weekend. Luckily we still have our wonderful Claremont sunsets, as seen here from Base Line Road and Padua Avenue. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
