On a clear Winter day, the mighty summit of Mt. Wilson can be seen rising up above Los Angeles to a lofty height of 6000 feet. Topped with radio and TV towers, four observatories, a museum and a paved road to the top, Mt. Wilson is the most civilized of the massive San Gabriel Mountains. It doesn’t take but more than a minute on one of her many trails to leave the city behind and enter into an unexpected sylvan paradise.
Join me as I trek about on this majestic mountain and discover several of her many treasures.
