9/3/11 Frye Mtn. via Georges Highland Path
Cloudy and cool-good hiking weather. We started from Walker Ridge Road and headed for Frye Mtn. Kelley soon found water.
An hour into the hike it started to rain lightly but not enough to be a problem . There are a lot of these old stone walls in these woods-most higher than this one which crosses the path
We saw a lot of fungus, especially the shelf variety
This one was about 12 inches across
This is where the old fire tower was anchored and there are still bolts in the granite ledge.
Trail guides describe great views from Frye but we have done this hike several times and knew this not to be true. This is the best.
We had considered doing the loop but decided against it for Kelley's sake ( she was still a bit lame when we got home) and returned the way we had come. 3 1/2 hours
