Solo backpacking trip on Sept 11. A sad day of remembrance and a moment of silence to honor this day. This hike was not easy today the altitude and my 30 lb pack almost got the best of me! Not to mention I forgot my trekking poles! Once I got to camp I set up on a perfect city view site. I had the whole camp to myself. A few day hikers passed by but ultimately I was alone. The sunset, city lights, stars and near full moon were an amazing show during the night.
The next morning the sunrise was so beautiful so I grabbed my Dirty Chai Latte and oatmeal and watched the show. I knew I had to get to the peak so I grabbed my summit pack and took off to summit San Bernardino Peak! I felt great and I had the summit all to myself!
Being solo has so many rewards although a slight thought of “What if’s” but being out here and experiencing the Wild being solo has some great rewards. It’s not about just peak bagging, it’s about the journey!
