Ascent Trip Report

Hike up via Vivian Creek with Jack. Highest elevation hiking to date... wasn't sure how the elevation would affect me - so have been spending quite a bit of time on the stair machine at the gym. Ascend via Vivian Creek - very clearly marked and awesome trail! Hiking by 6:30 am. 4:45 to reach the summit - 45 minutes or so on the summit for lunch, and back down in 3+ hours. Total time out was 8:30, hiking time 7:45 - made it back to San Diego in time for excellent Mexican food dinner with the families. Epic day at a strong pace! Hiking poles saved our knees and legs!
