Santa Monica Mountains

DCIM104GOPROSandstone Peak, 2014

I recently booked a bucket list – dream trip to Machu Picchu, Peru! I have a few months to train and will try to climb as many Southern California peaks to prepare for this massive 4-day / 27 mile hike in the Andes.

#1 was a 6-mile loop to Sandstone Peak in the Santa Monica Mountains.  3,000 ft peak / 1,100 feet elevation gain…baby steps. A 3-hour solo loop; a perfect getaway from the city.

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.” John Muir
