My last hike for original six!

The hike was just great! This was the last hike to get the original six!

Finished with the original six + Baden-Powel!

I went on this hike with Dan (who has also gone with me for every hike of the original six) and my brother (who went with me up Baden-Powell). We talked a lot (the boys mostly about their shared love of motorcycles), hiked super fast, and made it to the top for peak avocados. Seriously, avocados are a great hiking snack and surprisingly easy to take up with you to a peak).

This was a pretty long hike – 16 miles in one day. We started a bit late due to traffic and permits so we actually ended up hiking through a really beautiful sunset and on a dark trial with headlamps. It was actually really cool and I think that is going to make this one very memorable! Also, I love hanging with these two dudes. They are the best people and I was really happy to have shared quite a few peaks with them over the year.

I started this challenge thinking, woah… I think that is way to hard. Maybe I'll try Wilson? In just a few month of hiking around these peaks, I had scaled a 14er, gone on countless overnight backpacking trips (which I love), met and hiked with some very amazing people, and felt really connected with Southern California in a really interesting way. I had grown up in SoCal and had been so close to all of these peaks and forests and wilderness areas. It was pretty incredible to get to explore them in a way I never thought I would.

Cheers! Thank you so much for an incredible experience.
