In honor of our Veterans my personal trainer (who is a Vet) and I decided to tackle Mount Wilson over Memorial Day Weekend. We went early; we went HARD; we conquered. Though, my trainer was a little less prepared for my kind of hiking than he realized, lol. He said I tried to kill him by doing the hike in 4 hours or less compared to the typical 6 hours it takes most solid hikers. Long story short, we made it. There was a lot of brisk walking to the summit and nothing but jogging/running on the descent.

This makes for Wilson summit number 3 this year for me, and I'll happily do it again. If you want a partner for Wilson, reach out to me.

Happy Trails
