T. Chester's Hikes

The following table lists my hikes for the current year, including some that I have not yet written up. Hikes for previous years are linked at the bottom.

Hikes indexed in my Hikes in the SGM site are given an "SGM #", and hikes indexed in my San Diego site are marked with x in the "SD" column. A few Grand Canyon hikes are also included, marked with gc in the "SD" column, and Sierra Nevada hikes, marked with sn in the "SD" column. Hikes that are blank in both columns are SGM hikes that haven't been written up yet.

Calibrate your hiking ability against mine.
