The scenery on the hike is beautiful and this year we had more green vegetation that in the past. This has been a fairly wet winter.
The reward when we reach the top of the saddle is the view of Weaver's Needle. There were a number of other people there when we came to the top. One young family had their 8-month-old baby in a backpack. Another hiker was taking their picture with Weaver's Need in the background.
John posed in front of the landmark, as well.
Wildflowers are starting to bloom. We enjoyed the fairy duster and some plant from the pea family. I'm not sure what it is called.
I don't usually like the globe mallow flowers, but Wednesday the provided a bright orange spot of beauty.
