Snow free



I started at Redbox around 7:45 AM. Looks like there was AC100 Trail maintenance group on that at the same time as well. I started on the Rincon Redbox trail, It was a nice downhill all the way till Valley Forge Camp. I took the turn towards the Gabrielino trail through the camp. After a mile from the Gabrielino / Valley forge junction, there were couple of fallen trees, where you had to climb over.I took the kenyon devore trail after that. About half a mile on the kenyon devore trail, there was a section with another set of fallen trees. This one was a bit more difficult to get around. Somehow i squeezed through a gap, got scraped on the back while doing that, but managed to get around. After this, it was obstacle free. I dont think there was anyone on this trail around that time. Pretty much had the whole trail for myself. Once i got to Mt wilson, i saw one deer, thought that was well worth the hike. This was my first time to Mt wilson, so got to explore to see the observatory. Would definitely do this again.
