A new route on Mount Benson


Today I am certainly letting pictures do that talking. I had to work hard and fast to be able to take the afternoon off – but I did and never been happier about it.

I have never liked hiking Mount Benson – it’s just a grind. Today Paul took us on the outer route – oh my gosh! I have just changed my mind about Mount Benson in a very big way.

This longer route runs on the northern ridge: the views are almost constant, the terrain varied and often scrambly – all of it very beautiful.

What a wonderful afternoon.

Add to that my arm feeling better and a full day hike to look forward to tomorrow and what I’ve got right now is big happiness!P1030432 P1030434 P1030437 P1030439 P1030441 P1030443 P1030446 P1030450 P1030453 P1030455 P1030457
