High point  Sucess!

I've been to Mt. Wilson before, but 6/11/2022 was the first time that I stood on the highest publically accessible point on the mountain (according to the Hundred Peaks Section, it's a short distance from the snack bar). I was there around 4 pm and noticed quite a few bugs during that time.

Wilson Trail from Sierra Madre, 7 years later  Sucess!

Feels good to come back 7 years later and to repeat this hike. Perfect conditions. Wild flowers were stunning. Views were appreciated. Company was mellow. Just what I needed as I prepare for the Mountaineers Route.

Mt Wilson

From Chantry flats with Dino. Descended through clouds and the forest was incredibly green and lush. Very unexpected!

Long overdue  Sucess!

Finally bagged this one. The radiating afternoon heat made it quite hot... and the burn scar from last October's fire was plainly visible.

Mt Wilson Roundup  Sucess!

Peak 7 of 7 in the Mt Wilson area so I took the easy route from the parking lot to the tree next to the Cafe. Pretty cool area!

Finally hiked to the top  Sucess!

I've been to the top of Mt. Wilson many times by car, and even looked through the 60 inch telescope on top, but I finally hiked to the summit, via the Mt. Wilson trail, on February 6, 2016. The trail was surprisingly lush after the first couple of miles, with lots of oak, pine, and ferns to keep the trail nice and shady. Near the top great views of Baldy and co. opened up to the East. It was well-worth doing and I'm glad I can check this one off the proper way -- hiking instead of driving.
