Sala Benchmark

Sala Benchmark peak as seen after my hike after the clouds had cleared

Cochise Stronghold

The mountains with clouds as I drive in

The ridge as seen from where I parked

Now on top the ridge

More ridge. The hill to the left is not the peak

Finally, Sala Benchmark Peak comes into view

Closer, with clouds

On the home stretch

Summit views: Rock pile and metal pole where the benchmark is found, a view of the ridge, another rock that may be the highpoint, and the benchmark itself

View south from the summit

View west, Cochise Stronghold

The peak as I exit, no more clouds

My car is down there at Middlemarch Pass
