|Peak Summited||Mount San Jacinto|
|Trailhead||Round Valley Trail from Mountain Station (Aerial Tram)|
January 1, 2018 was such a beautiful first day of the year. The weather was perfect for hiking. I luckily had the day off and decided to see if I can get a few of my team members to join me. Unfortunately most are either sick, already away for the weekend or suffering from some injury preventing them from hiking. I was able to get Edith Rivas to join me on a hike to Mount San Jacinto.
My plan was to make this a quick trip but there is no such thing with all the traffic to and from LA. We did end up making up and down just under 4 hours, having jogged (Trail Running) down.
The weather at the peak was nice but a little chilly and recommend a light jacket and maybe some light gloves. Other than that the summit was not crowded at all today and had some amazing views which you can see on the picture I will post.
Looking to complete the SoCal Six Pack of Peaks within the first month and if possible within the first two weeks. Let's see who else I can inspire and / or convince to join me on another year of awesome Peak Baggin'
Thanks Jeff for putting this together each year!!!
Now let's go make this happen…
