Just came back from my Catalina Island Expedition.
Did some hiking, including the Trans Catalina Trail.
It's not the JMT of the Sierra....the highest peak is around 2,000ft....but
that is from sea level and the view from the ridge is..."OCEAN"...in all directions.
Slurping "Margaritas" and watching
bikini clad "Surfer Girls" was by far the most challenging and stressful on this expedition.
However, "Margaritas & bikini clad Surfer Girls" go a long way to make up for the lack of Granite Moutain Peacks.
