About the challenge
What is the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Depending on your location or where you want to take this challenge (of course, you can take them all if you have the time!), you sign up for Southern California, Northern California, Central Oregon, New England or Colorado Rockies. Newly, there’s a winter challenge for Arizona. I write more about the Six-Pack of Peaks challenge in my first log from Mission Peak.
Completed: December 25, 2018
It was a beautiful Christmas Day and… and instead of staying with family or friends and stuffing my belly with good food and Christmas candy as any other sane person would do, I got up long before sunrise and drove to Stinson Beach to hike up Mount Tamalpais.
That peak used to scare me; I did not believe I was fit enough or had the physical ability to hike all the way up from the sea level. But again, who says what you can and can’t do? And so I stopped thinking about my in/ability to get up there and just did it. And it was the best thing I could have done that Christmas.
The hike was just pure pleasure. The trails were so beautiful that I wanted to get back on them the moment I got back to my car. Mt Tamalpais instantly became the best hike I’ve done in 2018.
