“San Jacinto Peak 10,834 feet (3,302 m) is the highest peak of the San Jacinto Mountains, and of Riverside County, California. It lies within Mount San Jacinto State Park. Naturalist John Muir wrote of San Jacinto Peak, ‘The view from San Jacinto is the most sublime spectable to be found anywhere on earth!'
San Jacinto Peak is one of the most topographically prominent peaks in the United States. It is ranked sixth among peaks of the 48 contiguous states.”
Yesterday our Iron Mountain crew re-united for a different hiking experience. Absolutely fun day, for me…after hiking from Idyllwild before;I wanted to experience it from a different route. Still a full day after 11.8miles, 2,684 feet of elevation gain and 3,000 calories burned;we enjoyed the gorgeous views from the summit. Home after 10 pm, definitely a looong day. I got to scope out a bit of the terrain for C2C in the fall.
Another gorgeous day in the mountains 🏔 and we met a new friend from Hawaii that joined our group too; and invited us to visit someday-this hiking world 🌍 brings together people from all over the world. I 💕 it!
