Our Mountain Marathon was conceived of while we were on the PCT. All of Oregon, you walk past these ultra prominent peaks that rear out of the flat landscape, pointing the way for miles. Lassen Peak and Mount Shasta were two snowy giants, reminders of home on the hot heat of Northern California. We had attempted Hood before we left for the PCT, so walking around it tugged at our guts, taunting: come climb me. Now we will attempt all three in one weekend. I mean if we are going to drive to California why not try more than one? Our Mountain Marathon is here at last!
