So, I've wanted to make it to the top of this mountain ever since. I just didn't know where to start. Well, about 4-5 months ago I found a group of people at my work that are avid hikers, and so I decided to start hiking with one of them in particular. We started with some flat trails, and I was able to walk about 7 miles, most of it flat. But that would have been barely enough to make it to the top of the mountain, not to mention the elevation gain.
Over the course of about 3 months, I kept up training, at first every other week, the switching to every week. Finally, I was able to make an 8 mile grueling hike, and was thus ready to give Mt. Wrightson another shot.
So I tried again, on October 1, 2010. And this time, I made it. The trail was about 12 miles, 4000 feet gain in elevation, and took about 8 hours, and 4 liters of water, but I made it! Yeah! Anyways, here's a few pictures from the journey.

And this one is my co-worker who helped me make it to the top
