I have been a bit behind on both completing the six pack of peaks and logging my hikes here. Today I finally had an opportunity to finish the hike I intended to do last week. I was planning on Hiking Ontario Peak and then shooting over to Cucamonga Peak but met up with some newbies who asked for me to take them up to Cucamonga. I ended up only doing Cucamonga last week but finished Ontario today. Since last week I started to see the leaves turning yellow and this week they were even more apparent. I took a few pictures of the leaves and fall colors on my way up. Today was a bit cloudy and colder. You can definitely tell the Fall Season is here. I started late at about 1:34 pm and finished at about 6:58 pm or about 5 hours and 24 minutes including breaks and time spent at the summit taking pictures. I was the last one on the summit but jogged down and passed about 3 other small groups going down from other areas. Overall Ontario Peak has great views but some were not available today due to the cloud cover and rolling fog. Anyways, looking forward to seeing everyone next Sunday at the SoCal Six-Pack of Peaks Finisher Party. I will be volunteering at a table if you’d like to ask about my trip to Kilimanjaro or any other hike. See you all soon!

Whatever stirs your soul, ignites your fire and illuminates your spirit. Dream it, pursue it, and manifest it at the highest level. You’ll only ever look back and regret the things you didn’t do. The journey is what matters.

Hello, my name is Tony Ramos and I will be your hike lead for this Saturday’s hike.
We will be hiking to San Jacinto Peak and meeting at the Air Tram Parking lot between 7:15 am and 7:30 am.
The weather forecast for Saturday in Palm Springs is hot but up in the mountain it should be at least 30 degrees cooler and at the summit about 54 degrees so please dress appropriately. Bring water or electrolyte drink, snacks, a lunch and headlamp / flashlight in case we have to come down in the dark which I don’t expect. This is a Level 7 Hike and will include steady inclines and high elevation. Please reconsider if not ready! Please take the time to read all the hike details (http://latrailhikers.com/hikes/road-trip-hikes/san-jacinto-peak/) and familiarize yourself so you know what to expect.
Please be on time and if possible purchase your Air Tram Ticket in advance. I look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday morning at 7:30 am!
