I’m an avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast. Born and raised in Southern California, I grew up with the San Gabriel Mountains in my backyard. I’ve always loved hiking, but this past year it’s become my passion! In 2016, I completed the 52 Hike Challenge, hiking once a week for a year and even hiked Mount Whitney in one day! It was an incredibly challenging and humbling experience. Since then I’ve been bitten by the peak bagging bug! I created this blog to feature highlights of my weekly hikes along with reviews of some of my favorite hiking gear. I hope in sharing my passion for hiking it will inspire and motivate others to get out and explore. Happy hiking friends!
