8/15/12 Caribou Mountain






I have drawn in the Dynamite Brook Rd. and the trail that leads to Catherine Mtn. and  what's called the Caribou Extension that takes you up Caribou.The extension starts out as a nice woods walk


With some sunny breaks


And then climbs fairly steeply to an open ridge on the Caribou Trail, where Kelley decided on a rest


while I tried another panoramic shot- please do the double click thing

 Caribou Mtn. Trail pano 8-15-12


We followed the ridge for awhile then dropped back into the woods heading south west 


Mostly fairly heavily wooded but also some rock formations. Kelley only needed a boost once.


Not sure how far we got but it was quite warm and humid and I didn't want to overtax Kelley so we turned and went back the way we had come.

There had been only two very small pools of water in otherwise dried up streams so we stopped at nearby Fox Pond for a nice cooling swim





A pretty good outing- no problem with bugs and we met only one other person. 3  1/4 hours
