For being so close to suburbia, this hike has a ‘far away land’ feel to it, and I’ll go so far as to say that, at times, it feels like being in a National Park.
Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.
It’s a fun event and it’s pretty cool to see the younger kids doing this.
My incomplete hike to Santiago Peak was not the most pleasant and rewarding hike I’ve ever done. I chalk it up to a good learning, and hiking experience.
I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.
And it’s the invaluable advice, input, and really just hiking with them, that has made me not just a better hiker, but also someone who sees more value in experiences rather than material things.
