This was our first time doing what we’ve taken to calling the Baldy 9-Peaks Traverse. In this case, it starts at Icehouse Canyon and ends on Bear Flat Trail. The peaks in order are Ontario, Big Horn, Cucamonga, Timber, Telegraph, Thunder, Harwood, Baldy and Little Baldy. It’s about 30 miles with lots of up and down.
I don’t remember much about the hike, other than that Kam was unusually tired and didn’t do Harwood or Little Baldy. Bad, Kam, bad! To provide her motivation, I performed the entire first four seasons of Game of Thrones for her. That alone took me about seven hours of non-stop talking. I was pretty amazing.
