One for the books... absolutely stunning sunset hike tonight to decompress post-race. So clear you could see past the DTLA skyline across all of LA to Catalina island and beyond. Could not have asked for a better end to an incredible extended weekend #evergrateful #getoutside #hikeLA #sunset #malibu #paseomiramar #dtlaskyline #westcoast #losangeles #oklailoveyou

Clear skies from the hidden trail up to Temescal Peak - First time back in 6 months. Totally kicked my ass in 80+ heat but always worth the workout w/ @killer_e_baby #temescalcanyon #hikeLA #girlswhohikela #endlesssummer

Day #3 @zionnps
Angels Landing - 2.4miles / 1,488 ft altitude gain #nofear #seriouselevation #zionnationalpark #angelslanding #mustexperience
The last half-mile of the trail is strenuous and lined with numerous sharp drop offs and narrow paths. Chains to grip are provided for portions of the last half-mile to the top at 5,790 feet.

According to the National Park Service, "The route to Angels Landing involves travel along a steep, narrow ridge with support chains anchored intermittently along the route. Footing can be slippery even when the rock is dry. Unevenly surfaced steps are cut into the rock with major cliff dropoffs adjacent. Keep off when it is wet, icy or thunderstorms are in the area. Plan to be off before dark. Younger children should skip this trail; older children must be closely supervised." The National Park Service website officially recognizes five fatalities where suspicious activity was not involved along Angels Landing.

Last Sunday's hike was intense but well worth the stunning 360 views from the desert to the Pacific Ocean! #tahquitzpeak #idyllwild #hikesocal #mountaintoocean #granitemountain

Tahquitz Peak (or simply Tahquitz, pronounced /tɑːˈkwiːts/, sometimes /ˈtɑːkɪts/) is a granite, 8,846-foot-tall (2,696 m) rock formation[3] located on the high western slope of the San Jacinto mountain range in Riverside County, Southern California, above the mountain town of Idyllwild. Tahquitz has a steep approach hike (approximately 800-foot elevation gain in a half mile), leading to a roughly 1000-foot face.

Tahquitz Peak can be reached from one of several trails, and is only a half-mile deviation from the Pacific Crest Trail. The most direct route is the South Ridge trail starting in Idyllwild, California. This trail is a direct hike to the peak and is typically used as an "out and back" route, four miles in length, featuring a 2400 ft. elevation gain.
