Trip Photos – Beech Mtn – 20 Nov 2013

This trip to Beech’s Mountain was called on short notice because of a forecast for perfect weather.  For once the forecast was right and it was gorgeous.  The sun was warm, the air cold and still.  The group hiked up to the big overlook in a bit over an hour, where progress slowed for serious photo opportunities.  We continued on to the summit for views to the west and lunch.  Round trip from the Heriot Bay parking lot was four hours.
