About Your Experience:

"My dad and stepmom live in the So Cal area and have summited an unbelievable 800+ peaks in the 16 years they've been there. My dad is 68 and never slows down, he's amazing! When I heard about the 3-Peak Challenge through So Cal Hiker's Six Pack of Peaks, I knew we had to do it. Although my folks have done Baldy, San Jacinto, and San Gorgonio at least a dozen times or more, they of course said yes. We completed the challenge on July 25th and it was a tough, awesome, fabulous experience! Thanks for introducing me to some new California peaks and giving me an opportunity to get out with my folks and challenge ourselves!"

Challenge Highlight:

"Because completing 3 peaks in 3 days just wouldn't be enough, we threw in a bonus summit to Williams Peak near San Jacinto AND Dragon's Head Mountain near San Gorgonio. Dragon's Head added nearly another 1,000' of gain to an already long, tough day on the Vivian Creek trail. Seeing my 68-year-old dad urge us on and being able to stand on top of both Gorgonio and Dragon's Head in one day with my dad and equally incredible 60-year-old stepmom was pretty humbling. They are some of the most inspirational outdoor ambassadors I know and some of the most fun people to be outdoors with. I'm a pretty lucky daughter to do this with my dad :)"
