Ascent Trip Report

We drove from Guymon OK and started hiking around 9:40 am. The route is well marked and we made it to the granite obelisk at the high point around 11:20 am. We ate lunch on the way back down at the 3 mile bench which is near the top of the climb up the Mesa and gave a nice view. Benches are located every mile on the trail. We saw a rabbit but no other wildlife. The walk back to the car was unpleasant because of the heat, 34C when we arrived at the car. I think this is unseasonably warm for mid Sept.
High point # 12.
