Peak Mt Wilson / Mt Baden Powell Group N/A Trailhead Chantry Flats The babbling streams toward Sturtevant Camp refreshed my spirits and fortified me for the climb ahead. The summit of Mount Wilson was not so much a peak as a high, tree-covered knoll, but the views over the Los Angeles Basin and the San […]
Peak Black Butte Group N/A Trailhead Black Butte Upper Trail Gorgeous outside today! Wasn't sure if I was going to get in anymore of the 6 peaks after losing so many weeks to the fires, then personal travel. Only had time today to hike from the upper trailhead (4.4 mi / 1750 ft gain). Good […]

The latter half of the trail is more challenging – steep trail, loose lava rock, and some boulders to go over. After the rain yesterday, the skies were more clear today and no smell of […]
Peak Mount Bachelor Group N/A Trailhead Sunrise to Summit Super cloudy and hazy. Pretty cold at the top with lots of wind. Steady inline, but not too bad! Enjoyable pace, since my legs were still tired from South Sister. Would definitely do this one again, and hopefully the next time I'll get to see the […]
