Training Hike to Mazanita Peak

This morning we had a chance to go on 8 mile training hike to Mazanita Peak up in the San Bernardino National Forest. We are only two weeks away from our 25+ mile hike to Yosemite and attempt to climb Half Dome.

Elizabeth, Andrew, and our hiking coach Dave Kehrlein started at 7:30 am. It was great hike, it was about 20 degrees cooler, since we last did this hike. It was the first time Andrew and Elizabeth have done this specific hike.

I was surprised Andrew decided to come on this trip. He just got back from Air Force JROTC Summer Leadership School at March Air Force Base. He spent 7 days there and is leaving for Devil Pups for two weeks tomorrow. I figured he wants to come home and get a little rest. But he said he wanted to get in a training hike before Yosemite.

This trip is coming together , and I am looking forward the trip. My calves and Achilles still are very tight for the first hour of when we start hiking. But once we get going and warmed up, I feel great.

Well we got few more training hikes to go and final prep for this trip. I keep you posted.

Talk with you soon,
