Mt. Wilson

So I finally hiked the 14+ mile (yes, really 14+ miles) hike to the top of Mt. Wilson (5710 ft elevation) and back. It was quite an accomplishment. And such a beautiful hike. Shady and peaceful about 80% of the time. At the top, Mt. Wilson hosts an observatory (several telescopes) and solar towers. It also broadcasts radio and television frequencies for the greater Los Angeles area. Sam and I were both wondering how we were supposed to have enough energy to hike another 7 miles downhill. Luckily we were using different muscle groups, but it was still tough! It took about 7.5 hours (with an hour of that resting up top). I was so sore that night and the next day. It's a weird phenomena getting sore immediately. I haven't found a lot of people that that happens to besides me. Oh, well. Here are some pictures....
