Trip to the Top of Bennett Peak

Eleven durable hikers walked to the top (some very near the top) of big, round Bennett Peak, one of the highest mountains south of U.S. Highway 160.
Flowers abound.
Finally, some sprinkles fell. We all descended in time to avoid lightning and heavy rain.
Recommendation:  Every hiker should ascend this peak for the beauty and huge "picture" of the area where we live.  

Next hikes--about the same distance, but at a different location: Monday, leaving South Fork Visitor Center at 9 a.m.
Wednesday, same time/place unless announced differently.
