6/16/12 Tunk Mountain


Forecast was for a sunny day but as you can see they got it wrong again and we had a very cloudy day. Chose the trail from Myrick Pond Road ( it's actually off a road that branches off from the pond road) because it's the easiest for Kelley.

Once you rise above the trees this trail offers some very nice views.


              


                       

                


The Lady Slippers are still in good shape- I think because of the cool weather                                              
                         

Our view as we ate our lunch               


                                                                        
As we were coming down it looked like it might clear ( it didn't) and there were a lot of these Tiger Swallowtails about.

                                                                                                                                                                       



A good hike in spite of the lack of sun. We had the mountain to ourselves and enjoyed the beauty and peace of the place.  2  1/2 hours
