Hello Hikers! 2019 was my 4th year completing the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge and my 2nd year completing the Twelve-Pack of Peaks. I am an avid hiker, usually getting out every weekend to explore the trails and challenge myself. I was lucky enough a few years ago to be invited to join the hiking group Hike Beyond the Hills, by it founder (and now dear friend) Cece Lorthioir. Cece is an “original” Six-Pack of Peaks Challenger and Legacy hiker. Because of her I am now a moderator for her group. My goal when I am doing peaks is to try and use alternate trails so I can change it up a bit. In the past four years I have summitted San Jacinto 14 times from 6 different trailheads; and, San Gorgonio 6 or 7 times from 4 different trailheads/routes. In 2020 I hope to, not only complete the Six-Pack of Peaks for my 5th straight year, complete the NorCal and Arizona Six-Pack of Peaks.
