Sometimes you just gotta drop everything and run for the hills. That’s exactly how this solo summit of San G. went. Without a cloud in the sky and few other hikers on trail in the early morning hours I set off. For those that have hiked San Gorgonio from Vivian Creek the trail immediately begins climbing and doesn’t relent until you reach the summit. I was prepared for the typical windy summit usually found atop old greyback and was surprised to find the winds completely calm. It was a sunny almost hot day for mid November at 11,503 ft. I soaked in the views of Mt. San Jacinto, San Bernardino peak, and Mt. San Antonio before a quick haunt back down to the trailhead. It was a magnificent day to be in the mountains.
