It was great but i enjoy the trip to mount benedict i chat with one of the bro on the mount benedict more »
Nice view from the top. Quiet place for relaxation and personal meditation. Those Catholics who seek spiritual guidance it is the perfect spot.
A different experience a nice change of pace from the daily routine...the guest house front desk should be a bit more welcoming and courteous when giving information. ...I felt that we were intruding and bothering the person there.
