The push to the summit of Mount Williamson is a rugged climb up a slippery slope. The payoff is the 360 degree views on the barren peak where you can see everything from the mojave desert to the San Andreas rift zone. It was a chilly morning. My car’s external temp gauge was reading 31 degrees as we drove through Angeles to get to the trailhead at Islip Saddle. The summit was cold and breezy but refreshing. It was fun to bundle up and hike! Great morning to climb a mountain! Here are some photos I took along the journey.
