8/2/12 Eliot and Cedar Swamp Mountains
Yesterday it rained all morning so we ended up doing a couple of walks around the neighborhood. This morning was gray and foggy with drizzle. It was forecast to clear but when we got to the trail head on Rte. 3 the fog was thicker- at least not raining. We hiked up and over Eliot and then took the Asticou to the Sargent S. Ridge. The fog remained for the entire hike.

There were some nice lichen though
Back down S. Ridge and the Asticou to return on Harbor Brook. There had been little water on the other trails and Kelley was happy to have the stream to get in and out of and cool off.
Not a bad hike in spite of the fog- there were also few mosquitoes or deer flies. 4 hours
