6, 7, and 8 remind me of the opening shots of The Last of the Mohicans.... Very nice shots.

Thanks for taking us along on your hike Mole. My knees would be screaming in pain after scrambling over those rocks, but the views and the glorious majesty of the mountains would make it all worthwhile.

Do you know how often I've tried to get a dead snag that fascinates me to look good in a photo? I still haven't managed it in many tries, and you just pop one in (of course, yours isn't really dead, while mine is). And the rocks - are you sure there's a trail there? You could have fooled me! Not sure I'd want to try that one...

Ned - Thanks as always for your kind & insightful comments. Yes, I had throught about trying a lowered perspective with more of the pines, but both my 2-legged and 4-legged hiking buddies did not want to stand around and wait... Also the ridge is rather steep, and I couldn't find a really safe spot to crawl on down. Might try it next time though...

Sarah - Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the hike!

GW - Thanks for saying so! He was a very cooperative frog.

Penolta - Old yellow birches are indeed very picturesque, and thanks!

Mike - Thanks so much! Have not seen the movie, but this would be a good spot to film one.

Mtnman - Glad you enjoyed the fine views - hope you will get to hike up here sometime...

Harriet - It was just a real good-looking birch! (and you didn't see the other photos that I threw away...) It really is a trail, and well worth every step! (if you look carefully, you can even see a piece of rebar holding one of the rock steps in place)

Dustin - Thanks so much - it is indeed a grand view across the ridges!

Thanks, Mole, I figured as much... Main thing is to be safe... Thanks for providing such beautiful shots... Those blue mountains are just as beautiful as can be. All the best. Ned

Hi mole,

I really like the way you document your travels, always a mix of everything from macro to landscape. I envy your ability to see from all these perspectives and then to capture them so well. I'm hoping that putting some concentration on macros will expand my perception of things around me this year. . .

Your definitions of a "hike" and "trail" obviously differ from mine -- this looks more like an expedition through my aging urban eyes. . .

Scott
