MARITIE BLANCET: 3-WEEK FINISHER 3-Peak Challenge 2016

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

About Your Experience:

"I loved hiking & backpacking the three peaks with my husband each trail definitely had there challenging characteristics.

Mt Baldy was a day hike. I have hiked Baldy three times this was my first time going up Baldy Bowl Trail even though it was tough I got to the peak much faster then if I had hiked up Devils Backbone Trail.

I appreciated backpacking San Jacinto and San Gorgonio it allowed me to hike halfway up the trail before setting up camp.  Then have a very early morning "dark" hike the next day to summit.  I love having the peaks to ourselves, enjoying a hot breakfast and loving our morning scenery above 10K feet."

Challenge Highlight:

"Because I backpacked SJP & SGP, Marion Mtn Trail and Vivian Creek Trail were not as intimidating to me because we broke our up hill climb into two days.  And it is my first to be on top of the mountain at sunrise versus peaking late afternoon."
