Southern California
Most of my experience has been gained in the mountains of Southern California.  These include Mount San Jacinto, Mount San Gorgonio and Mount Baldy, among others.

The 8000 Meter Challenge is something I've always wanted to do.  It entails summiting Mount Baldy, Mount San Gorgonio, and Mount San Jacinto, back to back to back, as quickly as possible.  The total mileage is around 38 miles and requires over 11,000 feet of elevation gain.  A good time is around 18 hours.

I have also always wanted to accomplish the Cactus to Clouds route.  This route takes you from the desert of Palm Springs to the top of Mount San Jacinto.  It is 17.5 miles long and gains over 10,400 feet of elevation.

I have also climbed many mountains in the eastern Sierra Nevadas.  These include, Mount Whitney, Mount Langley and Mt. Agassiz.
