Mt. Wilson via Sturtevant Trail
This was my first time hiking a mountain in Southern California. It was a lovely and challenging hike from the trailhead in Chantry Flats to the Mt. Wilson summit. Getting down was the tricky part. I did this hike on a cloudy day in November, and right about the time I reached the summit, thick fog rolled in before I could head back down. A kind soul took pity on me as I wandered around the complex on the top of the mountain, and shuttled me back to where I parked. I'll be giving this hike a do-over, next time on a sunny Spring or Summer day.  I was looking forward to the view, but other than some lovely fall colors in the trees on the way up, I missed out on the scenery.
