Finished the Six Pack of Peaks Challenge last Sunday! San Gorgonio was the longest and tallest mountain at over 18 miles and 11,503 feet. The last few miles we're brutal with freezing temperatures and 40+ mph winds, but that only made us feel even more accomplished when we got to the top. This hiking challenge has been so enjoyable and has reawakened my love for being outdoors and in the mountains. I'm already daydreaming up hiking plans for next year..
#tbt to that one time I hiked this beast (highest peak in Southern California). This still remains the toughest one in my books (yup, felt harder than Whitney) but I’d gladly do it again. Nothing compares to the adrenaline of reaching that summit after having your soul broken down by its terrain.
Dear mountains, I miss you so much! See you soon 🏔🧤🎒
Finally conquered the highest peak in So Cal ✔️ 6k elevation gain, 18 miles, 1 day. One of the best views I’ve ever seen and definitely something to cross off the bucket list. What’s next? My Whitney? 💯 #sangorgonio#hikelife#keepitreal
