End of Year Hike to Mt. Wilson
Scott and I decided to head on up to Mt. Wilson via the Mt. Wilson Trail. On the way back, we went through the usual Hastings, to Jones Peak mini loop just to add variety.
The weather today was a cold. High cold winds at the peak, along with some winds in the shade really brought the temperatures down. Note to self, find a better moisture wicking shirt or pack so that sweat doesn’t build up on the back. Especially annoying during breaks when the sweat gets all cold.
We had start later than normal for this hike (9:30am). So we didn’t really spend too much time at the top to relax or look around. But lunch break was enough to quickly re-energize ourselves for the trek down. We also jogged a portion of the ridge from Hastings to the connector near Jones Peak. This saved us some time. By the time we got down, the sun had already set and it was dark (~5pm). A great clear day for a hike!
