I have been a walker for years and have done 6 marathons and several half-marathons. I have hiked my local hills in PV for the past 10 years, but never seriously, and often only in preparation for an upcoming marathon. I have never considered myself a hiker. Covid lockdown got me interested in hiking and I stumbled upon this group's FB page. I was interested in chasing waterfalls and met a hiker while hiking Black Star Canyon Trail who mentioned the 6-peak challenge. I planned my next hike to Sturtevant Falls, again chasing waterfalls, when the night before I decided to hike Mt Wilson. Of course it was a horrible physical experience, but mentally I was hooked. I have always loved the outdoors and loved the freedom that it brings. Now, my goal is to do as many peaks as I can and to also learn survival skills. Not sure where all of this is bringing me but I love being part of this community and it seems like there is always something to learn on every trail.
