Cactus to clouds

filed in Behind the Scenes

A few weeks back one of our outdoorsy, Cub Scout-ish wilderness-loving employees grabbed a pair of Capulin boots and took ‘em for a test drive in the high desert – namely, the ominous Mount San Jacinto. Armed with merely a headlamp, compass, knife, food and water he climbed the picturesque granite peak, reaching over 10,000 feet above sea level (In 103˚ degree temps. True story). 12 hours, 23 miles and 37 gummy bears later he reached the top. Lucky for us he took a few snapshots.

*Side note: if a 23-mile hike through the blazing wilderness isn’t really your scene, there’s also an aerial tramway that’ll take you to the top.
