After a late start, we were off in search of color.

A welcome almost chilly start of 49 degrees. BWMT gets you breathing deeply almost from the start. Part way up you start seeing spotty areas of yellow aspen. At the intersection with Bixler Saddle Trail we opted to head down through the oaks to the Bixler Mountain saddle.

After a break, we made the 900' climb back to the BWMT. This climb was actually much easier than we though it was going to be. From here, an additional 600' to the summit.

We took a brief break in the Bill Williams Lookout, were Curley and Larry plied their craft.

We skipped the Benham Trail option, in favor of an additional hike elsewhere and headed down.

When we got back to the TH, we skipped the additional hike option and opted to go for food instead.

This was probably the prime weekend for color on this hike.
