Hi.

Hiking, backpacking, and camping throughout Southern California and beyond

3 Year Anniversary of 100 Peaks

Three years. Yup. That's a long time in blog years.

This past year, I moved from San Diego to Santa Barbara, threw myself into my new job (which is a blast, by the way), saw my daughter turn 4, and was able to travel quite a bit. I wanted to give a bit of a rundown on what's happened in the last three years. Here are some fun numbers.

Peaks Hikes: ~92 Hike Miles: ~580 People Who Visited my Site: 44,305 Pageviews: 122,170 Blog Posts: 138 Tweets: 3,753 Photos in flickr: 2,725 Photo views in Panoramio: 337,124 National Parks visited:  6

I may have slowed down the frequency that I summit peaks, but I am enjoying the outdoors in other ways. I found a trail near my house where I can gain 7 miles and climb 4,000' before work and not feel done for the day. I also go on shorter hikes with my daughter on the weekends.

The PD and I have done three annual backpacking trips, to Mount Whitney, the Chicago Basin and recently to Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico, and we are planning many more.

There may even be a podcast coming up soon. There's a lot of work to do on the site to keep it fresh and complete, and it takes a lot of time to even keep up with what I am currently doing (I have 4 posts I need to write).

I am still passionate about 100peaks.com and you should expect it to evolve. I have more than one iron in the fire and I hope you like the results.

If you ever have a question or any input, please feel free to contact me any time.

Thank you for reading.
