Decided to head up North Wilson. When I parked in the lot around 7am for the picnic area plenty of spots. Started up the hike pretty quickly, only saw a few others on the trail. The lower section is very lush this year, nice to see a lot of regrowth continue to happen in this area after the 06 Brins Fire. The switchbacks were brutal, as usual.

After going past first bench the vegetation along the trail was very thick going up to the top. May need some trail maintenance at some point this year. So much pollen and flowering plants! (My allergies are definitely in full gear because of it!)

It was pretty windy at the top, which is usual in May, June. Not too many people at the top. Strung up a hammock to sit in and eat lunch. Always a nice view and great weather at the top of Wilson.

Hiked both lookouts and also just walked around off trail for a bit looking for wildflowers. All in all, great day!

Of course, when I made it back to the car in the afternoon, Oak Creek Canyon was a total cluster. Was glad to be driving out of the canyon, looked like a 2 hour traffic jam of creek seekers were trying to get into the canyon with their coolers and floaties. Sigh.
