I hiked Mt. Wilson with a group of five people. When we started it was lightly and a little chilly.  Me and one other broke off from the group around the first set of switchbacks. I realized the others had the car keys …  so we would need to wait for them to get up to the peak to be able to hike down the mountain and wait in the car.  While we waited I about froze. The top was windy and still had a good amount of snow/ice. I waited in the restroom for awhile to keep out of the wind. We waited about 2 hours before the others made it to the top.  The hike back down was nice and calm with a bit of light rain.
