Some photos of the burgeoning Apple Fire in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, which began Friday night and grew exponentially before my eyes on Saturday’s summit of Mount San Jacinto. As of this posting, the fire has burned 27,000 acres and is 30% contained.

Swipe for pano - Not the prettiest hike up/down, but the views are killer from atop Mt. Diablo just a 30 minute drive from my place. San Francisco is visible in the far distance (far left ) on a clear day like this, Karl the Fog moving in to blanket the city. This was shot from the observation platform this past Saturday for #NationalSummitDay . It was hot as hell, but worth the climb and cause for @big_city_mountaineers . Thanks to @alltrails as always for keeping me on trail. . . . . . #hike #hiking #hikingtrails #hikingadventures #hikingphotography #hikersofinstagram #dayhike #happyhiker #backpacking #backpacker #backpackinglife #camping #adventure #outdoors #getoutdoors #outdoorslife #outdooradventures #liveoutside #nature #forest #mountains #optoutside #onthetrail #naturelovers #adventure #naturephotography #mtdiablo #eastbay #norcal #nationalsummitday

I summited my first peak 🥳 Thanks to @hikeandlift not only do you inspire me to go out and explore 🤩 but your guide for day hiking was very helpful in preparing me to tackle my 1st peak ⛰ I didn’t grow up hiking, camping or any of that, so it’s always been such a foreign concept- buuut I had hiked somewhat here locally and had been wanting to summit Mount Baldy for as long as I’ve been ‘active’ (2015 ) Fast forward to me putting excuses aside and I did it! I hiked up and down via Devil’s Backbone and it was amazing- painful at times- but that view was absolutely worth it 💚 #devilsbackbone #mountbaldy #sangabrielmountains #cringehashtag #takingsocialdistancingtonewheights #yep #iwentthere #dontatme #mtbaldy #perfectday #nationalsummitday #sanantoniomountain #socalpeaks #socalhiking #optoutside #lessgo #sisepuede

It was 80 degrees at the trailhead, but a whole lot colder up top! Strange to be cold and standing on snow and ice in the middle of a hot day in August, but I loved being up there. Can’t get enough of those mountains! 😎 . #mountains #coldinsummer #mountaineering #climbing #cascademountains #volcanoclimbing #hiking #optoutside #nationalsummitday @blenderseyewear @arcteryx

We didn’t make it out for #nationalsummitday this year, but did finally manage to bag #mcafeeknob when we were in Virginia last month. True love is when your partner agrees to getting up before 3am to drive an hour and then hike two hours in the dark with you. So glad to finally cross off this iconic Blue Ridge hike! . . . . . #blueridgeoutdoors #sunrisehike #hikevirginia #appalachiantrail #bpfamilyhike #livebravely #beanoutsider #deschutesbrewery #roanokevalley #virginiatourism #blueridgemountains #landscapephotography #sundayafternoons #dadswhohike #virginiaisforoutdoorlovers #natgeoyourshot #natgeomountains #getoutandhike

I find that some of my favorite hikes are the ones that require some legit hands-on climbing. Safe to say Huntington’s Ravine on Mount Washington provided just that, with a little extra thrill. @kconnelly339 and I went for the full send on National Summit Day 🤷🏻‍♂️

Day 2, 15.5 miles, North Peaks, Katahdin, and another lesson in mountain humility. I stayed at Russell Pond specifically as a base for the North Peaks Trail. As I later discovered, the trail is rarely climbed. Part of this is to do with the fact that the park shut it from 2002 to 2016 and it has not been maintained again until recently. The first four miles is rugged, but great. The early parts remind me of the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, climbing quickly and steeply to the Ridge. There is an extensive Krummholz where the lack of trail maintenance takes its toll, getting continually battered by the tiny, angry sub-alpine shrubs. I broke treeline at 4,500, into one of the largest alpine zones in the northeast, far bigger than anything I'd come across in the White Mountains. What I did not know is, that between treeline and Hamlin the trail is a 2.5 mile hellscape of talus: the scattering of shifting rocks/boulders between the size of a football and a refrigerator. What makes the North Peaks particularly difficult is that almost all the talus is small and each step had to be carefully judged. The ridge was also completely socked in, with low visibility and a strong wind coming out of the west. It was incredibly slow going, but here was nothing to do but put my head down and make it from one cairn to the next. After what felt like forever, I gained Hamlin (4,756 ) and it was there that the weather changed. The clouds burned off, the wind dropped, and "The Greatest Mountain" was finally revealed to me. That view down Hamlin and across to the Saddle is staggering. The terrain became more forgiving, my pace quicken, and it was at this point I knew I was going to make it. The final mile up the Saddle gains 1,000 and while not easy, I knew the hardest work was behind me. Before I knew it, there it was, the A-Frame sign I'd seen in thousands of photos. I don't know how to describe the feeling of standing up there: excitement, relief, pride, and a little sadness. It has been a hell of a journey that did not relent until the very end. 67 New England 4000 Footers Completed - 59 solo. What's next? #ne67 #hikeme #maine4000footers #mainehikes #nationalsummitday

I summited the 2nd tallest mountain in Washington on National Summit Day (Saturday ). Standing on top of Mt. Adams was like nothing else I’ve experienced. - This was a challenge for me and out of my comfort zone, but that’s why I wanted to do it. And guess what. The whole adventure was incredibly fun! Here’s to finding joy in the struggle!

Was supposed to run 8 miles on Saturday for training but got a chance to combine events and go for a hike with my daughter instead. Hiked a half marathon up and back to a fire tour in support of ‘National Summit Day’ and ‘Go Take A Hike’ Virtual event. Great bonding experience with incredible views from the top making it sooooo worth the hike up! #NationalSummitDay , Backpacker Magazine

James and I were back in the studio this week tracking some vocals, but I took a break this weekend to climb Mt Adams! This one was a grind with 7k vertical feet of climbing over 13.4 miles. Mt Adams is the second tallest mountain in Washington at 12,280 ft and is the 5th Cascade volcano that I’ve had the privilege of summiting. Which one should I go after next? . #nationalsummitday #mtadams #mtadamssummit #cascadevolcanoes #cascademountains #mountaineering @backpackermag

Feeling grateful for friends and experiences that take me out of my comfort zone and into new accomplishments! This weekend we set out just before dawn and climbed Three Fingered Jack. I came just short of the summit but no regrets here; I enjoyed every minute of it. 💯 #exploreOregon #bestofOregon #threesisters #mountains #mountwashington #nationalsummitday #35000steps #newrecords #threefingeredjack #viewsfordays #adventuresquad #lifeasoflately

7.2 miles, 4,831 vert, 3.5 hours later and we’re are standing on top of the world. Even with only 3 hours of interrupted car sleep, I found myself grinning as we approached the summit - just in time for the sunrise. And I just found out that it was #NationalSummitDay yesterday.

Came to the realization this morning that I completed my first summit hike on National Summit Day. I keep replaying yesterday morning in my head. From stepping out of the car at the trailhead before 4am, and noticing how bright and plentiful the stars were so far from the light pollution of the city, to making it above the tree line before sunrise to enjoy watching the sunlight reveal every rock, tree, and snow patch across the dark silhouette of the mountains. Pictures could never do this experience any justice, and I’m so thankful for every second of it. #NationalSummitDay #Hiking #QuandaryPeak

Happy National Summit Day! Are you participating? If not, where would you be hiking right now? Fun fact: You don't have to summit a peak this year to participate. You can hike up a hill at your local park. I hiked up to Sierra Vista from Alum Rock Park. I'm guessing it is 3.5 miles and ~1500ft in elevation. So it is a hike up! And it is hike 21 of my #52hikechallenge . Woohoo! Fun fact #2 : It is free to sign up to participate. Head on over to @backpackermag website and sign up there. You can even sign up for your dream summit hike if you can't physically participate! Fun Fact #3 : There is a photo contest too, read all about it online and tag your posts. #NationalSummitday Happy Trails! 🤗 #wecoloroutside

Heard today was #nationalsummitday ⛰🌲 . . . Here’s a look back on one of my favorite summits, Mount Eisenhower. Wish I could be in the mountains this weekend but sometimes I have to work. Time to plan the next trip to the presidentials very soon.
