Mohave Community College Veterans Student Club President Reyes Lerma leads a pack of 13 veterans from the student club and the community down Hualapai Mountain Road Saturday.

The abnormally warm November weather stayed around one more weekend as members and supporters hiked 22 kilometers (13.6 miles) from the Hualapai Mountain Park Ranger Station to the Kingman Veterans Memorial at Locomotive Park.

The hike was a chance for veterans to bond and bring awareness to PTSD and veteran suicides. Family and friends joined in on the last 1.4-mile leg through downtown.
