Movember and a Mountain

For those of you who aren't familiar, Movember is when men around the world grow a mustache during November to raise awareness for cancer and men's health.


Tomorrow I will be climbing Mt. San Jacinto. There is no snow on it right now, but this picture looks way better than those with brown dirt and a lack of color.

We start downtown Palm Springs and climb (legs only, no bicycles) to nearly 11,000 feet. 22 miles round trip or so. The route we take is called Cactus to the Clouds. Should be fun!

When u say climb, do u mean hike/mountain climb? Or bike? With that kind of ascent I hope u mean hike/mountain climb.

Have fun!

Wow, that looks like a great climb! I always see that mtn on our trips back and forth to AZ - neat to know there is a trail there!

That looks cool! Can't wait to see the pictures you take of Cedric at the top. ;)

That looks like quite the climb - walk or bike. Wasn't San Jacinto a song by Peter Gabriel? Whatever.

Lately I have seen some "ladies" who could be in the running for Movember - for real.

Nice! That's one major climb - serious elevation.
