"11.17.18...Mt. Wilson (AZ) w/Kasie. 10.5 miles, 3,500’ gain in 6:15hr. Up and Over. Up the West side/down the East side. “Go big or go home!”...I’ve wanted this beauty for a long time. It’s so prominent in our local horizon. Kasie had done it before so I asked her to take me. We decided we wanted a unique tour so we staged a veh the day prior and set off at the crack of dawn.

"11.5.18. Griffith Peak #16....These Mountains give me so many happy memories. The year is winding down and the days are getting shorter so I’m taking every chance I can to get up here. I invited Harlan to join me today for some mountain cleanup duties. He also wanted to test his altitude tolerance so I was happy he decided to go. Taking the trails is repetitive so we decided on a route when we got there. Mazie Canyon (which is normally a Snow and Winter snowshoe route) was the route he chose. Neither of us had been up that way. It was very challenging. We were both a bit beat up from the 7 Pea" - Griffith Peak, paula.raimondi, Nov 5, 2018
"Everytime I’m on top of this Beautiful Mountain a happy memory is created. Charleston Peak #65 was one of those perfect days. I love all my Buddies who make me happy and spend part of their day climbing Big Mountains with me. Thanks Friends. Thanks Maia for inviting us. You are a beautiful person and have such an amazing spirit and energy." - Charleston Peak, paula.raimondi, Oct 29, 2018
"I camped out at the Trail Canyon trailhead and started my hike 9AM. I had planned on taking off earlier but it was still in the 20's when I woke up at 7AM. I decided to sleep in a little longer and allow the sun to warm up the area a little. It was still pretty cold (30's) when I started so I was in full winter gear (jeans, winter coat, gloves, stocking hat). Within the first 30 minutes I had started to change layers until I was down to shorts and a t-shirt. Throughout the hike I went back and forth from adding and removing layers because the temperature differences were so extreme. I could li" - Boundary Peak, Sledhead29, Oct 25, 2018
"Another stop on the way south. Postholing for a mile on the way to the top. Real cold and windy but a great area. Got an upclose view of a Golden Eagle on the way down. Nice outing. " - North Schell Peak, MatthewWinterberg, Oct 24, 2018
