Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page


About Your Experience:

"Amazing. Elevating. Therapeutic. Strenuous. Refreshing. Rejuvenating. Realigning. Persevering. Transcending. Uniting. 3rd year in a row with A16, 6th year in a row in general -- safe summit ascent and descent from the 3 Saints/Kings -- let's keep it going. Blessings."

Challenge Highlight:

"Overcoming fear of snakes. I ran into one on the Baldy hike and one on the Gorgonio hike. The one on Baldy was longer, but pleasant. The one on Gorgonio was smaller, but it was a rattlesnake and it actually attempted to bite my left trekking pole. Composing myself and communicating compassion and kindness to the snakes with some patience and gratitude was the key :-)"
