How could I not remember my expedition up to Mount Helix? Alongside Cousins Patti(Cali girl turned Minnesotan) and Kathy, bopping to rock music all the while zigging and zagging up the top of a mountain peak. Live wires, aren’t we? 🙂
Here is three different views from on top of the peak:
Looking across to another mountain peak and valley(I still have to research the other mountain’s name).
Looking down on urban sprawl and towards the Pacific ocean.
More fancy homes.
Mount Helix is special to my cousins because their childhood home was in this neighborhood.
Just for the anecdote, the name Helix refers not to a person but to a… snail! In 1872, a Helix aspersa was found living in the area. This gave the idea to Rufus King Porter (the founder of nearby Spring valley), to name this mountain, Mount Helix.
