8/9/11 Hogback Overlook Loop

A nice sunny day. we started from the Burnham Hill Rd. on the Halldale Spur > Bog Brook Trail > Hogback Connector >Hog Back Loop and back. The majority of the hike was fairly flat with the elevation gain being gradual. A couple of streams had enough pools that Kelley could cool off.

A variety of vegetation growing from the top of an old stump.

The view from the overlook

Roots at the bottom of a long overturned tree.

A very odd insect

Turned out a little longer than planed but a good hike. 3 1/2 hours


  1. The vegetation on the stump looks to me like a miniature forest. The tree roots look sinister. Nice focus on the insect eyes!

  2. Thanks for your comments, John

  3. John, love the tree roots and the stump photos best. I think it is so wonderful how all things have beauty. yeah, sometime we have to hunt for it, but its there. Bill

  4. Thanks for your comments, Bill. You are right-all we have to do is look.
