No climbing partners and a free day equals hiking in the foothills.  I hadn't been to the summit of Mount Morrison in 12 years.  It took me approximately 1 hour an 20 minutes to summit and 40 minutes to descend.  After a quick break at the trailhead, I decided to hike it again.  The south slopes trail is a good workout on a well-established trail.  There is a bit of scrambling just before the summit.
