Friday’s hike started from the Lousley Hill Trailhead. Bob, Allen, Janet, Sarge, Bella, Savannah, and I hiked one lap on Lousley Hill. We then hiked up Lousley Wash to the Pemberton Trail and took the Escondido Trail back to Lousley Hill Trail, for a four mile hike. I went on to hike another four miles by myself, adding in another lap of Lousley Hill along the way. As I was hiking down Lousley Hill, I noticed that my total ascent was at around 700 feet. I hiked up and down a steep(ish) section of the hill two times to bring the total ascent up to 1,000 feet for the day.
