I went on my longest hike of the summer yesterday. And I did pretty well. I left Eaton Canyon at 6am
and hiked up to Henniger Flats with a very nice young lady named, I think, Sheila (I didn’t write it down). On the way up we talked about the slide area and what we could do about it. She inspired me to do more than just work a little bit on the worst spots on the trail. See later entries. At Henniger Flats we got a short tour of the now closed museum by the helpful young ranger. She admired my Panama hat since she is from Ecuador like the hat.
At about 8am I left the Flats and headed up the toll road for another hour to the point where it looked like I was close to Mount Wilson.
Tower view point
I could have made it to the top and back if I had had enough time. It was a smoggy still day.
You can just see Downtown LA
