Monday February 21st 2011 – Snowy Bennett Mountain Photo

Click photo for a larger picture of Bennett Mountain from Feb 21st 2011.

My dog Addie and I hiked along Rattlesnake Creek in the Bennett Hills north of Mountain Home Idaho last week. With no destination in mind we walked southeast along a snow covered road. At about the 2 mile point, the road drops down a south facing canyon and the snow cover disappeared making for a very sloppy muddy hike.

Going off road and uphill seemed like the best route from that point. So we headed straight up Peak 5142. From on top of this peak, the view expanded into a 360 panorama. It was from this peak I took the above picture.
