About Your Experience:

"Although challenging, this was a great experience. I initially meant to do all three over the weekend, but after I finishing Gorgonio, I decided to try Jacinto, too. I had a few problems - The altitude made it hard to eat and drink enough - each bite of Cliff bar was a little harder to swallow than the last. Also, I accidentally slammed one of my trekking poles in my car door before I started Gorgonio. It died a tragic death half-way down, so I had to finish without poles. But I caught the sunrise at Baldy and the tail-end of the sunset at Jacinto; it was amazing! Plus, I talked with a bunch of neat people on Gorgonio and Baldy. I love the mutual encouragement and trail camaraderie."

Challenge Highlight:

"After pushing it to summit Jacinto, I caught the last tram for the night right before it departed. The feeling of accomplishment and relief as I rode down was definitely the best part of the whole day."
