I'm rating it a six for high blister count, everyone getting lost on rough terrain at least once, and almost killing George. Oh, at it was 7k+ ft and 31 miles, too. On the plus side, the high temperature in this famously hot area was only 78 F on the day of the hike. It was 7 degrees hotter the day before and 6 the day after. Mother Nature smiles on INCH.
Highest point in Napa county
