About Your Experience:

"It was challenging. I originally tried to do it 3 months, but had to re-start it due to the fires and going to military training. Doing in it 3 weeks was much easier. Also, I learned quite a few lessons about what to do/not do when hiking long distances. It was also good training for Mt. Whitney next year. Overall, it was great. So many new places, new experiences, and new friendships came from this challenge!"

Challenge Highlight:

"Hiking San Gorgonio. It had some of the best views I have ever seen while hiking throughout the entire trip. It was also the most satisfying to hike since it was the one hike that always kept getting postponed and took about 2 and a half months to do."

Favorite Gear:

"My bush hat. I never go on a hike without it no matter what."
