Baker Tower, afternoon light

I couldn’t resist this photo of Baker Tower with a gorgeous afternoon sky. My iPhone 4S was handy, but wasn’t quite up to the task of capturing the brilliance of the sky or the gold in the those clouds.  Still, just wanted to share!

Hiking the A.T. in fall color

Gosh, what a beautiful fall it has been.  Although it has been rainy at time, the temperatures have been warm and the leaves bright!  After our overnight hike along the Appalachian Trail of early summer, John and I have determined to hike every weekend in the fall and to complete the full section of trail from Hanover to Moosilauke.  We’ve been on the A.T. for the past three weekends:

  • October 7-8, Mount Smarts and Mount Cube [pix]
  • October 13, Grant Brook and Reservoir Road [pix]
  • October 20, Holts Ledge. [pix]
