MIREYA VELA: 3-DAY FINISHER 3-Peak Challenge 2016

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

About Your Experience:

"This was a great experience, it challenged me and made me more confident about myself and my abilities. I made a new friend that I apparently was following on Instagram and she went with me to San Jacinto so I wouldn't go alone. This hiking community is great. I also continued to challenge myself by completing 2 more additional peaks after San Jacinto with Cucamonga Peak and Mt Wilson. 5 peaks in a row which is the most big mountains I've climbed ever.  I will finish my last peak with San Bernardino mountain on 8/13/16 which will make this journey more memorable, because I will be finishing it with my best friend. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I will continue to hike and hopefully do the 24hr A-16 in the future. "
