What a long and beautiful hike! Vickie, Evelyn and I started promptly at 4:30 am. It was pitch dark. We were so happy and motivated to be there especially because not was Vickie birthday and it was her last peak to finish the challenge. We did very good, stop a few times. We stopped by High Creek Camp and Marianne join our group. We were very cold and decide to pursue our route hence not getting breakfast…. We went on and by the time we reached the last section I was having a very bad headache and needed to slow down. Finally we reached the top. Chipmunk created us and so many of people who were already there. A lot of traffic at the top! I was very hungry and after taking photos I very much appreciated a slice of pizza, nuts, grapes and cheese . We exchanged few words with hikers but we were cold so we started our descent. Each stages offered a different scenery and for the first time I use my digital camera and captured San Gorgonio’s majestic beauty. Beautiful hike with beautiful ladies!
