Mount Cucamonga - September 20, 2017

This was the second climb that I completed of southern california's "six pack of peaks" in preparation for my summit of mount whitney in september 2018.  it was a 12-mile round trip hike, to the summit of mount cucamonga (elevation 8,859'), consisting of a hiking elevation gain of 3,899'.  this was probably one of the most picturesque wilderness hikes that I have ever completed.  It wasn't the most difficult, but it was the most beautiful.  There was nobody at the summit but me and a bunch of beautiful swallowtail butterflies.
