12/3/11 Flying Mountain / Valley Peak

Cold, windy, and sunny. We had not done these trails in some time but I remembered a spot near the summit of Flying Mountain where Kelley would need a boost, and she did. It was such a beautiful day that we hardly noticed the cold.

The trail down to Valley Cove

From Valley Cove we took the truck road to the Valley Peak Trail. This was more difficult for Kelley than I remembered and she needed a boost a few times but did not let that dampen her spirits. The girl loves to hike.

We continued on to St. Sauveur and then turned back taking the St. Sauveur Trail back to Valley Peak and then the trail back to the road and the parking area.

Kelley didn't want to get into the car but wanted to check out nearby Fernald Cove and so we did. There was a huge old tree at the end of it and I got a couple more pictures.


  1. Did Kelley get a swim? Does she find water to get into on every hike?

  2. Yes there was water on this hike. She doesn't always find water enough to get into but mostly, as she will get in very small pools just to get her belly wet.

  3. Nothing like the crystal clear December air for great vistas.

  4. Hi penbayman

    Right - it's been very nice.
