Making use of Memorial Day, I hiked up the 8500 foot Tahquitz Peak in the San Jacinto Mountains. I set out early in the morning, allowing me to see the sun slowly creep over the mountains. It was both a beautiful and peaceful hike. I never encountered anyone on my way up but of course on my way down, people were everywhere, making me glad I went early! This picture is of me enjoying the majestic view from the peak!
