Ascent Trip Report

Cheryl & Anthony invited me on this hike also hiking with us was Wendy & Christine.I was a little apprehensive as I haven't hiked a 4,000 footer in a long time . Boy am I glad I went.I didn't take Luna along as I didn't want her to get hurt & I missed her alot. Nest time girl This was an awesome hike & now is 1 of my favorite hikes
Day started early meeting at Beaver Brook TH after spotting a car at Benton TH. I haven't done Beaver Brook cause I heard it was a hard hike so what do I do I wait till I'mm older LOL.The worst part of the hike is mainly at the beginning till you hit the shelter but along that section you are rewarded with waterfalls on your journey
We hit the shelter hydrated & rested a bit then on to the summit. Day was a bluebird day just gorgeous
Got to summit and of 3-4 times I've hiked this Mtn this was the most people I saw on summit
Came down Benton tr which was perfect for my knees . Black flies started to get bad as we decended
when we got to cars I was surprised how good I felt really glad Cheryl said I should go .I love hiking with this group never any pressure . Love you guys & thanks again
10 mile 9 hrs 12 minutes with an hour rest on the summit..We didn't want to leave
