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.
