Mount San Jacinto Peak via Skyline Trail (Cactus to Clouds). We hiked C2C  5/13 to 5/14 and did it again 6/4 to 6/5. My favorite parts are hiking at night with friends, the beautiful sunrise, kicking it at the Ranger Station, the summit, and the tram ride down. Once again the emotion of accomplishment didn't hit until descending via the tram and looking back up the mountain. The nighttime temps were 10°F warmer this time than last, which substantially affects hydration but we were prepared and even left water in both rescue boxes as originally intended on the ascent.
