During a weekend trip to Death Valley, I and intrepid hiking companion Nina climbed Manly Beacon in the Zabriskie Hills. On the way up, a Meetup group from Las Vegas passed us, so they were on top when we arrived. (Video, no sound)
I've led our hiking club at work since 1997, with members from all over Southern CA. I also volunteer with the Pacific Crest Trail Association as an Area Coordinator in LA County, and since 1998 maintain the local PCT as a member of the Southern California Trail Gorillas.
